We have spoken in other posts here on the blog about the presentation of monographs and dissertations. As much as the printed work itself, the presentation is of paramount importance to get a good evaluation. Once your essay is ready, now is the time to prepare for the presentation, and at this point some tips on how to prepare yourself and what you should not do are important.
In this article, we’ll talk a little about the attitude and practices that should not be made during a dissertation presentation. In the end, you are expected to be aware of the most common mistakes and be prepared not to commit them.
1 – Posture that does not fit the occasion
The presentation is a formal moment and the student who is going to present it is expected to have a proper posture. As cool as your counselor and guidance counselors may be, go neatly, as if it were a job interview.
Do not wear very casual clothes or accoutrements and avoid making jokes or comments that have nothing to do with the presentation.
From the point of view of posture, the MonografiasProntas presentation should be seen as a job interview in the company of your dreams. And here among us, putting on a good clothes and getting dressed is one of the easiest things you will do throughout your monograph. The difficult part is presenting and getting ready, going tidy and having a correct posture does not demand research or study, just an attitude on your part.
2 – Go to the clash with the examiners
It is always good to remember that the academic world is a universe of vanities. It is not always the case, it is true, but as a rule, professors and university doctors, who formerly were called “chairmen” or “professors”, are in a position of scientific authority and the titles of doctor and postdoctor have an inevitable effect on people’s psychology.
At least that’s what we test every year in the most diverse universities. Mostly teachers a little over age and who are already in an area or discipline to several decades are proud teachers. And you should be careful about it on the day of your presentation.
The examiners are there to question and make considerations about your work. Unfortunately not all teachers do this in a constructive way and there can be more firm and complicated questions.
In these hours, the important thing is that you do not leave for the direct clash. That is, if asked, even if incisively by one of the examiners, calmly listen to everything and present your considerations in a calm and polite manner. Avoid phrases such as “You’re wrong,” “You did not understand” or similar questions that might denote that you are doubting the counselor’s knowledge.
Use words such as: “I understand your considerations, Professor, but I disagree about this, this and that” or “You really pointed out an important question, but in the context of the work this is due to a specific reason, which was … . ”
Do not jump into the clash and do not use language that might imply that you are doubting or questioning the ability of examining teachers.
3 – Demonstrate superiority in relation to other works and researchers
A very common mistake students make is to demonstrate superiority over other monographs or other students. In addition to being an attitude that does not lead to a good research environment, this type of feeling creates discomfort and leaves the image of the person who is presenting spotted.
As perfect as your Monografias Prontasmay be, be careful when using words when highlighting the strengths and highlights of your work. Do not make direct comparisons with other monographs, let alone with other people. Do not use a high-pitched tone of voice or a haughty stance when presenting.
The monograph is just your first scientific work, and even at the time of the presentation, you are there to learn. So it’s not the time to take advantage of other jobs and people.
4 – Complaining about college or people involved in the job
Usually in the process of preparation and until the Monografias Prontas and presentation is ready, the student goes through many mishaps, some related to his own college. Sometimes the institution does not have enough infrastructure to support the monograph, the counselor may not have helped as much as you’d like, other teachers may not have shown willingness to help, and so forth.
There is nothing wrong with making a record of the difficulties you encountered. In fact, this is important in contextualizing the limitations that need to be improved in order to make future work even better. However, never make that record in a tone of complaint.
Do not point guilty or mention people nomi
