Presentation Transcript

  1. BIS Group Meetings New meeting convenor: Dr. P. Blazkiewicz

  2. Group Meeting Rules • Compulsory for students to attend and present at group meetings. • Everybody including supervisors must give a presentation. • The point of the BIS group meetings is to interact, ask questions and discuss scientific issues. • Learn how to collaborate and work together in a constructive environment.

  3. Presentation Issues • Need to raise the standard of student presentations. • Each student represents our group. • We all need to give clear & concise presentations. • No help from audience members, you must be able to defend your own work!

  4. Presentation Issues • You must be aware of the big picture: • What are you working on? • Why it is important? • Why is it interesting? • What do you want to achieve? • If you don’t understand something then it must be focused on and corrected, not ignored.

  5. I have no Results today! What do I do? • You must still present some material. • Discuss a recent publication that impacts on your work. • Discuss new developments in your research field. • Are there problems with your project? Experiment? Theory?

  6. Audience Issues • Ask questions? • Do you understand what the presenter is saying? Are they clear? • What is this guy trying to achieve? • Do these results look strange? • Question the logic used by the presenter, don’t believe everything you hear! • Speak up if you have suggestions or ideas! • Is there a better way? • How can the work be improved? • Have you seen similar results in another field? • Don’t reinvent the wheel!

  7. Audience Issues • Use your imagination to come up with questions and answers during the talk • It will give you new ideas about your own work. • You may also find solutions to each others problems.

  8. Final Note • Need 5 slides (Max) & 8 minutes (Max) to impress! • Title (1min, Max) • Introduction/Background (2min, Max) • Experiment/Method (2min, Max) • Results/Discussion (2 min, Max) • Conclusion (1min, Max) • Don’t talk too fast, talks must be clear, flow smoothly and make sense. • Before the next meeting I will contact students for practice talks • I may suggest some modifications before the next meeting
