##### 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: $$\label{eq:sum} x = y + z$$ 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.
