Giving Oral Presentations

What is a presentation?

Sometimes you may be asked to prepare your assignment as a presentation. In such cases, you will have to present your assignment to your classmates. While presenting, you must try to maintain your audiences interest and persuade your listeners of your viewpoint.

The presentation must have three main parts

  • Introduction: provide a general background information about your topic. You must explain what you have set out to achieve during your presentation by providing an overall idea of the content
  • Body: This is where you describe and demonstrate the information gathered on your topic. Make it interesting and direct the audience to important points, that you want them to notice
  • Conclusion: Provide a summary of the important elements of your presentation
