Improving presentation skills

This is a very important topic to scientist. In order to be effective, a scientist must communicate their findings/ideas/etc. effectively. Generally a presentation of slides is given to an audience. Thus, it is important to have effective speaking skills and effective presentation slides.

I will be posting some links for help, tips, and general information.

This first link is a youtube video by a professor at Penn State in engineering communication. A pretty good informative and brief video.

Improve your PowerPoint -

Unfortunately, presentations and PowerPoint are synonymous these days. Kind of like how, especially in the southern US, people say Kleenex when they mean facial tissue, Band-Aid for bandage, Coke for soda, etc. Of course these tips work for any presentation and slide presenters.
