Did a bit on the student's experience presenting.  Some pitfalls and advice.  Some examples were a presentation on Venus where the file crashed and the student ended up drawing on the board and lost the plot.  Disaster.  Others included just reading and having no eye contact.  We heard that presenting in a foreign language makes it even harder.  Even if your English is good and you feel comfortable doing group work, once you are all alone in the front of the class things can go awry.  I will try to update with pic from the book.

We looked at how presenters opened.  Usually introducing themselves  their position, their topic, who the intended audience is, and a bit on varying levels of formality.  Homework was to prepare the opening to a talk on one of 3 topics.
