A presentation on improving presentations

Presentation skills are essential for researchers (and many other professionals as well).  So, why are so many presentations so boring, uninspired and uninspiring?

Good people make bad presentations. Sometimes it’s because they think making a good one takes too long; other times it’s because they don’t understand what makes a great presentation. Tomorrow (Wednesday July 11), Dr. Cindy Waters will provide some useful advice to improve your presentation.

Her talk is part of the weekly the Engineering Research Center Summer Seminar series. It will start at 11 a.m. in the McNair Hall Auditorium.

Dr. Waters is an assistant professor of mechanical engineering and associate director for precollege programs for the NSF ERC for Revolutionizing Metallic Biomaterials. She conducts research in engineering and in education.
