If you are using PowerPoint for your Summit presentation, you must submit the presentation to Classroom Technology and Event Support (CTES) no later than noon on Thursday, March 28 –absolutely no exceptions!
PowerPoint presentations are submitted through Lyceum: If you told us you were using PowerPoint, you will be added to a Lyceum course that will allow you to upload your PPT presentation. This Lyceum course will be called: Mount David Summit 2013: Final Presentation Submission. It will appear in all the presenters’ Lyceum course list by Monday, March 25.
Preparing for the Summit: Workshops, Review Sessions, and Online Feedback
As you prepare for the Mount David Summit poster or presentation, take advantage of these great how-to’s, editing, and workshops.
Summit Support from Writing at Bates
HELP IN PREPARING A TALK: Writing at Bates will help your hone your presentation. The writing specialists’ excellent workshop, “Paper to Presentation: Turning Your Paper into a Great Presentation,” offers critical advice on how to develop a stellar talk. This is essential for students giving talks, but poster presenters also find this workshop valuable. It will be offered twice:
Wednesday, March 20, 4:10 p.m. in Coram 230.
Thursday, March 21, 4:10 p.m. in Coram 230.
We encourage all presenters to take advantage of these excellent workshops. Be your best at the Summit!
