Presentation Transcript

  1. Giving Effective Feedback

  2. Effective feedback is designed to help the speaker improve.

  3. Immediate Good Feedback: • Constructive • Personal opinion • Builds confidence

  4. The evaluator benefits too: • Listening skills • Analytical skills • Observes and learns from effective presentations • Enhances personal communication skills

  5. How? • Highlight good points • Show you are interested • Talk to speaker in advance • Personalise your language • Be specific • Evaluate the talk, not the person

  6. Build confidence, encourage • Be honest and sincere • Be constructive • Don’t whitewash

  7. Sandwich approach: • Start with speaker’s strong points • Focus on 1-2 points for improvements • Finish on upbeat note, summarising strong points

  8. A very, very basic introduction to LaTeX

  9. Basic structure of a document: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \begin{document} \end{document}

  10. Title and Author \title{My test document} \author{Humpty Dumpty} \begin{document} \maketitle

  11. Sectioning: The sectioning commands available depend on the document class. Important ones are:     \section   \subsection    \subsubsection    \chapter

  12. Plain text: • Plain English text needs few LaTeX commands.   • LaTeX does the formatting. •  Several blanks are treated like one. • Text is usually set left and right aligned. • An empty line starts a new paragraph.

  13. Special characters: { and }    group things in LaTeX %        starts a LaTeX comment $         starts or ends maths mode $$ starts or ends maths display mode \          starts a LaTeX command To type a special character, precede it with a \ e.g. \$ prints $ and \% prints %.

  14. Changing Fonts:    LaTeX supports different fonts, e.g. bold face, italics, etc. Bold: {\bf he}llo  appears as hello. italics:      {\it he}llo   appears as hello . underline:  {\underline he}llo appears as hello. 

  15. Environments: LaTeX supports different environments: \begin{....} \end{...}

  16. Itemizing: \begin{itemize}     \item bread     \item butter \end{itemize}                          appears as • bread • butter

  17. Enumerating: \begin{enumerate}     \item bread     \item butter \end{enumerate}                   appears as • bread • butter

  18. Description Environment: \begin{description}     \item[bread]  (multi grain)     \item[butter]  (unsalted) \end{description}                    appears as bread   (multi grain) butter  (unsalted)

  19. Making Tables: \begin{tabular}{ l l c  r }     bread & 1 loafs & 500 g & \$2.50 \\     chocolate & 2 bars & 100 g each & total \$ 2.40 \\ \end{tabular}   appears as bread 1 loaf 500 g $2.50 chocolate 2 bars 100 g each total $2.40

  20. Borders: If two columns are separated with a vertical bar | there will be a vertical line between these columns in the table.

  21. Typing Mathematics:    Mathematics is typed in a special mode, the maths mode.     $ ..... $  or \{ .... \}         For example, the intersection $A \cap B $ of the sets A and B.

  22. Displaying Mathematics:    The displayed maths mode is enclosed in $$ .... $$ or \[ ... \] Displayed mathematics is set centred on a line by itself.

  23. Mathematical Symbols There are many. See handout. e.g. \alpha, \beta Greek alphabet \sum, \product \rightarrow and many more

  24. New Environments: The following definition before \begin{document} defines an environment for theorems: \newtheorem{theorem}{Theorem}[section]

  25. Cross Referencing: \begin{equation}\label{eq:sum}     x = y + z \end{equation} By Equation (\ref{eq:sum}) we can see that....

  26. appears as:   x = y +z                             (11) By Equation (11) we can see that

  27. More Cross Referencing \begin{theorem}\label{MyTheorem} A fabulous result. \end{theorem} By Theorem~\ref{MyTheorem}

  28. Theorem 7.1 A fabulous result. By Theorem 7.1

  29. Labelling other Environments: You can also label other environments, e.g. sections. When using cross referencing, make sure you run LaTeX at least twice.
