Guidelines for submitting an oral presentation PowerPoint:

  • PowerPoint must be on approved FedUni PowerPoint template (access template from downloads below)
  • Ensure that you download the guidelines below before preparing your slides
    • The total time allocated for a presentation is 15 minutes. Your talk must be a maximum of 10 minutes in length, which will leave time for audience participation.
    • The general rule of thumb, for a presentation where you will be “speaking to the slide” is that you should have no more than 1 slide per minute. Therefore, for a 10 minute presentation, you should have about 10 slides (including the title slide and end slide).
    • The Session Chair will introduce you and then start a 10 minute timer.  Once the sound of the alarm goes the Session Chair will ask you to stop presenting (going overtime may affect your overall score and feedback).
  • PowerPoints must be emailed to:
  • Closing date for PowerPoints is Friday 12 November
