Guidelines for Speakers

Presenters at the Department Seminars are strongly encouraged to adhere to the following guidelines:

• Presentation time is between 30 and 45 minutes. Discussion follows for the remainder of the Seminar’s 90 minutes. 
• Speaking is strongly preferred to reading. 
• Presentations should be as accessible as possible to staff and postgraduate students outside of the speaker’s area of specialization.

A white board is available. We are also able to duplicate handouts. Powerpoint and overhead projector presentations are very difficult to accommodate and are only rarely worth the effort.
