In this skilful lecture,
Professor Patrick Winston of the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology offers tips on how to
give an effective talk, cleverly illustrating
his suggestions by using them himself. He
emphasizes how to start a lecture, cycling in on
the material, using verbal punctuation to
indicate transitions, describing "near misses"
that strengthen the intended concept, and asking
questions. He also talks about using the
blackboard, overhead projections, props, and
"how to stop."
