Visual Presentation Tips:
- The first visual should be equivalent to the title page of the paper.
- Your second slide should state your research topic & thesis
- Visuals should be brief, simple, and uncluttered. Focus on important information. Each visual should make one simple statement and supplement your thesis statement.
- Use good judgment in determining the number of visuals and balance their contents. Although you do not want to quickly flash multiple visuals, you should not spend too much time on a single visual either. Typically, a visual should represent an example e.g. like in a paragraph
- If you can read the slides without a magnifier, people in an audience could probably read them on the screen.
