Preparing and Delivering Oral Presentations

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

This series of 28 slides provides instruction on preparing and delivering oral presentations. The first portion of the lesson focuses on classic principles of accessibility, understandability, and design. Later in the PowerPoint, significant attention is given to issues of delivery and audience response. Photographic examples of stance, gesture, and expression emphasize how excellence in oral presentation depends upon numerous, interlocking parts: visual, verbal, emotional, and physical.

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.
