Divan: Communication Skills for the Biosciences

Example research presentation (Chapter 13)

To support Chapter 13 of the book, this is an example of a well-structured research talk developed using the presentation software PowerPoint (an audio commentary has been added using the software Articulate). The talk was delivered by a final year PhD student from the University of Leeds, Claire McDonald, at the Royal Entomological Society Postgraduate Forum, Rothamsted Research Institute (2008). The presentation was awarded best oral contribution for the afternoon session. She has since then presented her work at a number of meetings including the 14th International Congress of Entomology, Durban (2008) and The Palaeontological Association annual meeting, Glasgow (2008).
