Team Presentations in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering

Module by: The Cain Project in Engineering and Professional Communication. E-mail the author

This PowerPoint file of 36 slides describes

  • Organizing your team’s presentation
  • Enhancing your team’s image
  • Making advanced visual design choices

A good engineering team presents a unified, coherent argument despite changes in speakers. To orient the audience to the purpose and significance of the talk, the team puts its work in context and identifies a specific problem without going over too much familiar background.

A team can help the audience easily grasp relevant details by (a) offering the type of presentation usually given in such situations and (b) making the argument structure accessible. Techniques of forecasting and repetition can keep the argument structure accessible throughout the talk. Supporting its analysis with references to specific engineering work, not just with opinions, earns the team credibility. However, the team’s dress, delivery style, and gestures of courtesy and respect for one another also cause the audience to identify with the team.

In addition, by designing the visual aids and handouts with advanced design principles, engineering teams can reinforce their words, argument, and delivery. Figures appropriate to the audience help them interpret data and become persuaded. Color and font choices and overall slide design convey a professional image that implies technical professionalism.

My Favorites (?)

'My Favorites' is a special kind of lens which you can use to bookmark modules and collections. 'My Favorites' can only be seen by you, and collections saved in 'My Favorites' can remember the last module you were on. You need an account to use 'My Favorites'.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
