Developing Successful Presentations Part I: Analyzing Assignment Prompts

This segment of our Developing Successful Presentations series discusses the importance of thoroughly analyzing assignment prompts. Before you can begin planning and preparing for your presentation, you have to identify what your professor’s requirements and restrictions are. We point out some of the most important considerations.

Goals and Objectives
