Oral Presentations

For assistance with an oral presentation, reply to your Zoom meeting invitation with supporting materials such as outline, notes, speech draft, or slide deck. Your consultant will observe as you practice your presentation or review your notes with you. You and your consultant will discuss the presentation's strengths and weaknesses. Sessions are scheduled in 30-minute blocks and vary depending on the needs of the student and the nature of the project. They may cover any or all of the following areas:

  • Thesis and purpose
  • Organization
  • Logical flow
  • Support for and development of ideas
  • Use of sources
  • Physical Delivery
  • Vocal Delivery
