  • In case of difficulties with accessing the webinar room, call the hotline phone number (517) 908-7257 or email dnp@frib.msu.edu.


  • The session manager will send a reminder email and/or text to all session speakers one hour prior to the session.

  • Before the session, check the online program for any changes in the session, keeping in mind that the DNP schedule is on CDT  through Saturday, October 31 and on CST  thereafter.  Daylight Savings Time Ends Sunday, November 1.

  • Test the connection and presentation well before the session in the speaker ready rooms.

  •  Join the session 12 minutes early and introduce yourself to the Session Chair.

  • At the appropriate time, turn on the video, and share the screen.  If the screen share does not work, the session manager will share the slides from their screen and advance the slides for the speaker.  In case of connection difficulties, the talk can proceed via the phone bridge for the assigned room.

  • Please stop when signaled by the Chair to do so.

  • When not speaking or answering questions, please mute and turn the video off. 

  • Organization of your talk

  • State the hypothesis and purpose of the research.

  • Describe the methods of investigation.

  • Presentation tips

  • Prepare notes that highlight the salient points of the talk.

  • Practice the talk delivery several times prior to the presentation, along with the slide sequence, to be sure it fits into the allocated time.

  • Use simple sentences.  Avoid jargon, highly specialized vocabulary, and unfamiliar abbreviations.

  • Think about questions that might be asked about the work and be prepared with well thought out answers, being mindful of the limited discussion time.

  • Audiovisuals should be chosen to enhance the talk.

  • Choose the medium that will optimally display the information - don't use words if a graphic (graphs, tables, charts, etc.) will convey it more clearly.

  • Use line graphs to show trends; bar graphs to compare magnitudes, and pie charts to demonstrate relative portions of a whole.

  • Make sure audiovisuals are concise, uncluttered, and easy to read.

  • Include data collected and what was learned.

  • Give conclusions based on the collected data.

  • Emphasize the significance and highlights of the research.
