Presentation and PowerPoint

Due to the difficulty of finding a suitable time for all or most students, instead of giving an
oral presentation, each student is required to prepare a 3-minute PowerPoint presentation
with voice overlay and submit it to CloudDeakin for assessment. Your presentation should:
• Introduce your project topic and supervisor
• Say why this project topic is important
• Outline key research questions in this area you are looking to address in your project
• Outline how you are going about your research project
• Outline your project progress to date and planned further work to be done


• Plan your presentation and talk carefully
• Put a descriptive figure for your presentation on your slide
• You just need one static slide – don’t try and squeeze too much detail in
• Keep the PowerPoint slide simple and concise
• Speak slowly (not too slowly) and clearly
• Get someone to look at / listen to a draft before submitting for feedback
• Try not to be too nervous when presenting to a group; practice presenting to a small
group of friends may help
• Have a look at sample presentations online: http:
