Presentation Preparation

Fred Meijer Center for Writing and Michigan Authors

Visit the writing center for help at any stage of your writing process. The center's well-trained peer consultants can help you to brainstorm ideas, organize content, integrate research, polish a draft, and correctly document sources. Any graduate or undergraduate GVSU student can take advantage of the drop-in hours simply by coming into the center with a draft of a paper. Sessions typically last 20-30 minutes.

Speech Lab

Undergraduate consultants are available to assist with the following: choosing a speech topic, developing a speech purpose statement, selecting source material for speech content, crafting an organized presentation, producing visual aids, effectively introducing and concluding speeches, and speech delivery.

How you deliver your presentation is at least as important in effectively communicating your message as what you say. Use these guidelines to learn simple tools that help you prepare and present an effective presentation, and design PowerPoint slides that support and enhance your talk.

Poster Presentations

Poster sessions are frequently used as a means to convey information in a brief format in classrooms, conferences and symposia, and workshops. Designing effective poster presentations is an art unto itself. This guide provides resources to make the process easier.
