[Seminar] 5/14 Thesis Presentation

Some Observations & Comments:

  • Pretty good overall. Congratulations!
  • Don’t forget to add proper title to the name of your faculty advisor.
  • Properly handle English punctuation marks and leading/subsequent spaces. E.g., there should be a space between an English word and subsequent left bracket, as in: Porter (1992) or Porter (波特).
  • Time management still an issue.
  • No laundry list when time is short.
  • Don’t be shy. Highlight your main findings/contributions/arguments.
  • At least you should know the field (prior research) well, even if your thesis has nothing worth highlighting.
  • Don’t forget you’re the expert in the room.
  • A Challenge: can you present just as well in English?
  • Final reminder: you don’t have to do this if you are not ready to graduate yet.
