Guidelines for Presenters

The Senate is at its best when there is insightful discussion and debate. With that in mind we offer these recommendations:

  1. The “time ratio” of presentation to follow-up  discussion should be 1:2 or better.
  2. Slides and supporting materials should be posted on our website  several days before the meeting.
  3. Despite the previous point, do not assume that the audience has read all your supporting docs. This means that your slides should be fairly self-contained so that everybody can follow.
  4. Browse through what the faculty handbook says about the senate.
