As you prepare your presentation, pick up some tips from the library’s resources. See this handy guide on Business Presentations from Linda Hauck. These recent books are also helpful guides to presenting:
Presentation Skills for Students
by Joan Van Emden & Lucinda M. Becker
Palgrave Study Skills
Presenting with Power
by Shay McConnon
by Jo Billingham
One Step Ahead
Power Points!: How to design and deliver presentations that sizzle and sell
by Harry Mills
If your presentation includes a PowerPoint slide, handouts, or any type of material that makes reference to or displays the work of others, be sure to follow the University’s Academic Integrity policy. It is important to attribute the work of others, and APA citations may be appropriate. Cite all references to the work of others, and be sure to attribute all images and other media to their original authors. Please see the library’s guide to Academic Integrity for more information.
If you missed any of this semester’s Cultural Film Series presentations, you can still catch up with the library’s DVD collection. See the Spring 2011 features, or all recent Cultural Film Series features.
We all know about APA rules for citing sources and creating a reference list, but it is important to remember that APA style also dictates the way you format and write your paper. If your senior project involves an academic style paper, be sure to format it according to APA style.
Get familiar with the basics of APA style with their online tutorial. For the official rules, see the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. These resources will instruct you on formatting your margins, your title page, writing your abstract, and much more.
For questions that are not covered in these guides, try searching the APA Style Blog, or contact me for help.
If your project is being presented in some other format, such as a PowerPoint presentation, formatting rules are not likely to be covered by APA style rules. This is because the purpose of the Publication Manual is to assist scholars preparing their manuscripts for publication in journals.
However, even in other formats, it is important to attribute the work of others, and APA citations may be appropriate. Cite all references to the work of others, and be sure to attribute all images and other media to their original creators. Please see the library’s guide to Academic Integrity for more information.
