How to give a technical talk

Blog entry by: Amitabha Bagchi.

A momentous day in the semester’s calendar comes to an end: midterm presentation day. Inevitably in the course of the day’s presentations the thought comes that these presentations aren’t only to evaluate the progress of the projects but also to help our students learn how to present a technical talk to an audience. But the end of a long day of presentations isn’t a good time to write out my own ideas on how to give a good talk. There is just about enough energy to provide some links to resources on the Web that will repay a half hour of attentive reading with a lifetime of improved communication skills.
