Appreciate that giving a blackboard talk is more difficult than it seems!
Your presentations will require thoughtful planning and practice.
• Most people write too small at the board – write for the audience at the
back of the room, not for yourself.
• Most lectures are too fast. Plan to pause frequently and ask for questions.
You can often gauge from facial expressions whether people are engaged
and following.
• A rough rule of thumb is that it takes 30 minutes to cover 2 one-sided,
single-spaced pages of notes. Of course, the best way to know your timing
is to practice the talk.
• Not every word you say needs to be written on the board, but everything
you want the audience to remember should be written down
