5.5.2 Use the views of others to guide your presentation

Asking others to read, listen to and comment on the presentation of your results can give you important feedback on your work. Think about who you can ask to provide you with constructive criticism and helpful comments on your work. To help others comment effectively, be clear about what you want them to focus on. For example do you want comments on technical detail, accuracy of content, quality of argument, general structure, grammar and spelling, presentation of results, and so on? Decide how you will present your work to them for their feedback.

Time out

Make notes of any feedback, comments and suggestions, and record how you intend to address these comments.
