Oral Presentation Skills: Showcase Workshop

In this workshop, we’ll explore the topic of presentation effectiveness through examples (using rubrics to evaluate presentations) and through reflective presentation creation exercises (translating text into winning content).


> Conventions (writing, layout, and timing)

  • Is your presentation free of errors in grammar, spelling, and usage? 
  • Did you edit your presentation carefully? Or are there sloppy errors?
  • Was the layout consistent and clean?
  • Was the text easy to read?
  • Are headings easily distinguished from the regular text?
  • BEST CASE: Your presentation is easy to read; text is free of errors.
  • WORST CASE: Your audience struggles to comprehend your presentation due to the grammar, spelling, usage, layout, and font choices.
