Writing and Practicing an Oral Presentation

oral presentation

Part of your education at university is to develop good speaking and presentation skills, which will be useful in both your academic and professional life.

You may be required to develop and deliver an oral presentation by yourself or with other students, and to answer questions from the audience about your presentation. To do this successfully you need to plan before you start developing your presentation.

To get a good mark for an oral presentation, you need to put a great deal of thought and effort into planning the presentation and designing the visual aids, as well as practicing the presentation until you are fluent.

Oral presentations include those that are designed to inform, to inspire, to persuade or to pitch a product or service.
