Teaching Scientific Presentations


This web page presents resources for instructors to teach the assertion-evidence approach for scientific presentations. This structure is described in The Craft of Scientific Presentations. Given below on the left are links to resources for instructors to use when teaching the structure: teaching slides, before-and-after slide examples, exercises, and a tutorial. Given below on the right are links to example presentations that follow the structure. Instructors are more than welcome to use these resources in their teaching as long as they give credit to the Speaking Guidelines web-site (and where applicable the original authors).
