For each speaker, write a single paragraph of up to 250 words (230-270). 10% Focus on the scientific content of the seminar, not the style of the speaker.

In 1 2 sentences, summarize the new information that you learned from the seminar. Tips for an effective Seminar

Overall organization Introduction 5-10 minutes. Sell your topic. What is the system? Why is this worth studying? What do we know so far? What questions are you going to address? Results 10-15 minutes. Explain the experiments/results in detail! Dont overestimate your audience. They are unlikely familiar with your area. Better to explain one or 2 experiments well than several superficially. What have you learned (both from positive and negative results)? Future Goals 5 minutes. Where will the work go from here? Why is it important? Individual slides Keep slides simple and focused on one or 2 points. Use visuals when possible (i.e., not too many words!) Reference others work appropriately (Authors et al., Journal, Volume, Page, Year). Check font size/color on big screen. Speaking style Avoid reading. Rote memorization also sometimes doesnt work as you can get lost. Look at audience as much as possible (above their eyes). PRACTICE WITH YOUR LAB BEFORE HAND TO IMPROVE FLUENCY AND TIMING. Zbarsky Award Best 3rd year BIOC 530 seminar as judged by grad student body Only students who have attended all seminars (from evaluation sheets) will have a valid vote. Prof. Sid Zbarsky - first member of Dept of Biochemistry (1950).
