Here’s what to expect:

Do’s and Don’ts

Here is what I will be looking for: While I am listening to your presentation, I am waiting for the evolutionary hypothesis and evidence that you understand how to consider diseases in terms of evolution and natural selection. So make sure that evolution appears early in your presentation

Make eye contact with the audience.

Practice your presentation, it will be better.

Time your presentation at home. Aim for 12 – 15 minutes.

Things to avoid:

Some previous students have started their presentations with a lot of detail about proximate causes and leave their discussion of an evolutionary hypothesis until the last slide or two. That is not good.

Avoid too much text on your slides.

Make sure you don’t have too many slides!

Good luck!
