A research project is not finished until the results have been published. No matter how spectacular the findings, they only become relevant when they have been shared with others, for instance in a presentation at a conference. Students in Bachelor`s and Master`s programmes are expected to present the results of their projects and their theses too. And with the internationalisation of study programmes, more and more presentations are given in English.
How do you prepare a presentation? How does it differ from a written paper? And what should you watch out for when you are presenting in an international context? These questions form the starting point for Presentation Techniques.
The authors give tips and hints on how to prepare and structure a presentation in general and cover issues that are specific for presenting research: how to present tables and graphs, for instance, and how to organise the findings of different types of studies. They also discuss general presentation techniques - e.g. how to use body language, the voice, and visual aids. The authors offer expressions and idioms from both the technical sciences and the humanities which can be used in a wide range of presentations. All this makes this book eminently suitable for students and graduates of all nationalities and specialisations.
