Guidelines

Slideshow Presentation Guidelines


Presentations will be limited to 12 minutes, followed by 3 minutes for questions. The session moderator will alert you when 10 minutes have elapsed and will interrupt you at the end of 12 minutes. If you go beyond the 15 minutes allotted, you will be asked to step aside for the next presenter.

Instructions and evaluation forms can be obtained from your instructor so that you know in advance what your evaluators will be looking for in a quality presentation.

We can accommodate PowerPoint slide-presentation software. We strongly recommend that you bring your presentation on two portable storage devices (memory sticks) to avoid unexpected technical difficulty.

Your presentation will be preloaded and saved on a server prior to the beginning of each session and opened by the session moderator for your presentation. This will accommodate smooth transitions between speakers and ensure that your presentation is in working order prior to your presentation.

Be sure your name and presentation title are clearly indicated on the first slide.

Poster Presentation Guidelines

Requirements and evaluation forms for Poster Presentations can be obtained from your instructor so that you know in advance what your evaluators will be looking for in a quality presentation.

At the time of your scheduled presentation, you will attach your poster to a numbered easel corresponding to the presentation number assigned to you in the symposium schedule. Clips will be provided for attaching posters to easels.

Poster Printing Guidelines:

  1. Please use one of the ‘Poster Templates' we've provided you in PowerPoint.
  2. If you are inserting images, please make sure they are at least 200 dpi (you can check by right-clicking the image, and clicking on ‘properties', and clicking on ‘details').  Anything less than 200 dpi will likely "pixilate" when scaled up to poster size.
  3. Please make sure that all spelling, grammar and content is correct before submission. It is extremely important to make 100% sure the poster is the way you want it because all prints are considered final.
  4. Please submit your poster no later than Tuesday April 13th @ 5:00pm. This will give us time to get your poster printed along with everyone else's.
  5. We can accept your poster in the following ways:

a. Walk-In, Tarleton Center, Room 131 (M-F, 8-5pm)

a. Flash/USB Drive

b.CD

b. E-Mail, edeleon@tarleton.edu (as long as the file size is not over 3 MB). Please call 254-968-9060 to confirm receipt of your poster if submitted digitally.

Recommendations:

  1. If you need your poster laminated, the TSU library has a laminator that you can use.
  2. All posters will be printed in the order they are received and be rolled up and kept in the Center for Instructional Technology (Tarleton Center, Room 131) for pickup. If you email your poster, an email will be returned letting you know your poster is printed and ready to pick up.

Trifold Presentation Guidelines


Requirements and evaluation forms for Trifold Presentations can be obtained from your instructor so that you know in advance what your evaluators will be looking for in a quality presentation.

At the time of your scheduled presentation, you will set up your Trifold board on a numbered table corresponding to the presentation number assigned to you in the symposium schedule.
