Sample text

A longer amount of time can result in a lack of focus with tasks being left until closer to the delivery date, then a period of frenzied activity leading up to the event. However much time you are given to prepare, you may find it useful to create a time plan or a chart of your intended progress. This could involve: • listing all of the tasks that need to be completed before the date of the presentation • placing these tasks in an order of priority • allocating the time needed to complete each of these tasks • checking your progress regularly • reallocating the remaining time to make sure that you complete all of the tasks Time will probably be needed for reading to increase your understanding of the topic.

To achieve this, you will need to consider several questions: • What is the purpose of the presentation and what is it that you need to communicate in the allotted time? • What is the current knowledge level of the audience and what new knowledge or awareness do you want the audience to have gained from listening to or seeing your presentation? • What is the most effective way to communicate this knowledge? For example, is it more useful to show pictures, use models, sound, speech or text? There are many influences on how well we communicate and on how well we are understood by our audience.

This is very understandable. It is all very well for tutors to say things like ‘Well, there is no pressure on you’, ‘You’ll do fine on the day’, or ‘Don’t worry, we will be doing it in quite an informal way’. However, tutors have to stand up and present regularly each week. They are highly practised and usually fairly self-confident as a result.
