FROM WRITING TO PRESENTING PROPOSALS

Here, I found this video that will help start and finish your presentation effectively. I hope it will be useful. Turn on the subtitles mode, watch it and read.

A vital part of the work completed in academia is sharing our scholarship with others. Such communication takes place when we present at scholarly conferences, publish in peer-reviewed journals, and publish in books.

We have studied in this supplement how to write a proposal by knowing the types, structure, format and vocabulary. But there is, sometimes, something further than this that seems to be a little more complex… presenting your proposal in front of an audience or a committee in your dissertation defense, for instance.

The video has given you some light on some  tips to do your best:)

Helpful Tips for Writing an Abstract

Identify the Problem and Research Solution-The abstract should have an opening that identifies that particular subject matter and how the research that you have done will provide a solution. It is very important to make this clear in the initial sentence or two of the abstract as people want to know immediately what the dissertation is about.

  1. Stick to the Word Count– In general, an abstract is usually no more than 250 words. It is important to keep the word count in mind when writing an abstract. Knowing that you only have 250 words to summarize your entire dissertation can prevent you from being overly descriptive.
  2. Include Information on Methods and Results – Part of the abstract should briefly mention the methods and results that pertain to your topic. The method is basically the type of research you did, and the results are what was learned or created as a result of the methods.
