Learning and Teaching in Higher Education

Perspectives from a Business School

Edited by Kathy Daniels, Caroline Elliott, Simon Finley and Colin Chapman

There is often little guidance available on how to teach in universities, despite there being increasing pressure to raise teaching standards, as well as no official requirement for academics to have any specific teaching qualification in many countries. This invaluable book comprehensively addresses this issue, providing an overview of teaching in a business school that covers all stages of student learning.

Chapter 12: How to do a confident presentation

Chris Jones


This chapter offers a number of useful tips as to how to construct and deliver a confident presentation. It is based upon my experience as a lecturer teaching large classes, observing colleagues and watching academics deliver presentations at conferences across the world. The tips are by no means exhaustive and on the face of things may seem obvious. It is surprising, however, how often the tips are neglected by academics even though standing in front of an audience occurs frequently as an academic. It is my hope that this chapter will be very useful for lecturers and PhD students who have recently started teaching.
