Background of Study
Seminar is a meeting to discussion the issue conducted scientifically. At seminars usually display one or more conversations with paper or paper work that had previously been in prepare.
Basically it makes no difference with seminar discussions, seminars with the objective of solving the existing problems and the activities of the seminar. The seminar is a mutual exchange of thought between the participant and the participant or participants and publishers. In the seminar clearly arise among publishers and debate activities participants were equally defend his opinion which is already thought to be by himself.
Seminar in General is an academic activity, either at uneversitas or at any formal organisasasi. For the seminar on the fact that an activity was formed and formally involve the Publisher and participants must exist in the activities of the seminar. The word seminar is derived from the Latin seminarum which means “land where plant seeds” means that the seminar is a container to get and increase knowledge. Because in the seminar will be many new thoughts that will be put forward by the participants of the seminar and publishers. Seminar on the dialogue activities can be said to involve a moderator and then submitted to the Publisher, so it will cause some assumptions related to the theme of a seminar at the time.

Definition of seminar presentation
Seminar presentation is people for the purpose of discussing a stated topic. Such gatherings are usually interactive sessions where the participants engage in discussions about the delineated topic. The sessions are usually headed or led by one or two presenters who serve to steer the discussion along the desired path.
Getting Started of Seminar Presentation
I should have maximum knowledge on the topic :
I had selected a topic which I know very well. I did research on the history of Computer Virus .How they come to the world of computers. What types of viruses are there .How much damage they are causing to the computers..etc. I may not have complete, but maximum knowledge on the topic I had selected.
How should I start my seminar :
Basically nobody starts there seminar without wishing, “hello good morning. Today I am going to give seminar on ….. Topic” .The next line what we say is important. It could be starting with question or writing the title on the board and mentioning the points I am going to cover in today’s topic. Any ways I did both wrote points I am going to cover in the seminar and finally asked this question “do you guys know this.”
I should learn presentation skills (body language, eye contact..etc.):
In any presentation body language, proper eye contact is necessary. Looking at one person all the time and speaking won’t get others attention to your presentation. You should be looking at all .Now at the same time, the way you are moving your hands ,your eyes according to the situation makes people more attracted towards your presentation.
Handling situations or create situation to handle:
Everywhere in the world, there will be some people who are jealous or don’t like or competitor to you .They always try to question you something which you may not be able to answer. That depends a lot on how much the opponent knows about the topic you are presenting. If the opponent know the topic well, then he is going to ask some question .Which he thinks, you may not know. But remember you are prepared well. Of course to be frank, In some situation you can always say “I have no idea on that ,I will get back to you on this” or “I don’t know much about this, I will get back to you on this”. Sometimes, people may ask you more examples then you mentioned in the presentation. So be prepared with more examples which you are not included in the presentation. In fact, don’t include all the examples in presentation. But, Keep one ready and hidden in your mind to handle situation like this.
Interacting with people to get comfort on stage:
It was the first time I was going on stage for my seminar. I had lot of fear in heart. Even though the class room had only 8 to 10 people. I never had done this before. I was totally uncomfortable. But I had thought to tackle this situation .When I started my seminar. I wrote the word in capital “Virus”. Looking at the audience I asked what is virus?? 2 minutes silence. Then slowly I started looking at one by one .In the end I asked any idea on this??No one answered .Then I started explains the abbreviation for VIRUS. Vital information Resource under Seize. I wrote it on the board by pronouncing the words. By this time I was comfortable on the stage. My fear is gone. I filled with confidence.
Research and Understand audience
You should know your audience first. How much they can understand the topic you are speaking on. Whether you need to tell them the basics of computer first and then talk about virus. This is very important to make your topic interesting and your seminar successful.
Rehearsal by imagination
I stood on the bed, closed my eyes imagined my class room with many people in there and started my presentation .I did rehearsals for more than 2 to 3 days. Every time I did rehearsal I saw myself improvement from previous presentation rehearsals.
How to finish the presentation
People usually finish their presentation with Q&A(Questions and Answers session) what if no one asks any questions? So what you can ask question back to the audience. That’s not to check their understanding but to make a good ending. I thought to add little fun to my seminar and put the answered to the question “Who created Virus and why”. My answer was “You know the famous ad Onida owner choice, neighbor’s envy”. People who wanted to destruct computer software or information of their envy’s has created this. Later my lecture corrects it saying it’s also used for some good will also. Thanking every one, when I stepped down from the stage. I saw smile on every ones face. They were nodding there head with appreciation.
My lecture patting my back said well done. It was the happiest movement in my life. Fortunately, I got a chance to apply this knowledge in a real time. I had a neighbor who has just joined the college for Bachelor of Arts with optional English. On very first day his lecture asked him to give seminar on some topic of his choice in next 2 -3 days. He was also from Kannada medium and he never had done presentation in his life time. He had come to me to get some help on the same. Believe me or not whatever I prepared I just explained to my neighbor Subhash. He prepared accordingly and done presentation rehearsal 2 to 3 times every day. Surprisingly, one fine day he came to me and hug me tightly and said his presentation was terrific, very much appreciated by the lecture and friends.
Delivery: The Art of Making Great Presentations
An ideal seminar should be of 45 minutes duration. There is no point in having a hundred slides taking boring long time or to be crammed in a rapid show.
Visit the web site on PowerPoint Woes to get more information on how to prepare a good seminar. There, Marc Minkler says, ‘Teach in the way you know how to teach’.
Ideally a seminar presentation should be of 30 slides with 50% graphical presentation. Do not have the whole slide in only a text format.
Spontaneous speech referring to slide contents is better than reading the slide.
Reading the slide keeps you away from the much desired eye contact with
Before actual presentation, it is nice to review the slide contents, hide some slides that are not needed and mentally prepare for the performance.
Avoid short form of the words in presentation. If unavoidable, explain a word fully in its first appearance using abbreviation later.
Humor is important to bring in lighter moments and to retain the attention. Develop the skill of using humor while presenting.
Remember, audience has some expectation from the presenter. Assess and align yourself with it during presentation.
Do and Doesn’t of Seminar Presentation
Do of Seminar Presentation
Think carefully before the event: what does this audience want to hear? Hint: they are not interested in hearing how great you or your company are, they want to learn new things that can make THEM more successful.
Engage the audience! Ask questions and have them put their hands up, in order to raise the energy level in the room.
Start by urging the audience not to take notes, say that you will post your presentation summary online immediately afterwards. Your presentation summary should not be all your slides. Instead, put together three (maximum 3!) slides that explain your key messages with pictures and very short texts.
Keep an eye contact with the audience, and move around the stage, don’t hold on to the speaker stand! Use a remote clicker to control your presentation. Remember that 70% of your communication is in your body language!
Engage the audience during your talk, at least every 10 minutes. For example by letting them vote on a question with their hands or green/red cards or mentometers.
Speak slowly to enable the audience to take in what you are saying and increase their understanding, it also gives you more respect. Never try to cram a 30-minute speech into a 20-minute time slot, that is a big no-no!
Be visual, use pictures and videos that illustrate your points. Read my lips: less text, more visuals! You can do great presentations without any visuals, but then you have to me a master storyteller.
Doesn’t of Seminar Presentation
Don’t talk for more than 10 minutes before you somehow engage the audience.
Don’t read word by word from your script. You will sound like a robot and miss the all-important eye contact with the audience. Use stiff cue cards with key words and starter sentences instead.
Don’t speak with a too low or monotonous voice. If people can’t hear you well at the back of the room, or if you don’t have any energy in you voice, you will lose the attention of the audience in a minute. Hire a voice coach!
Don’t talk too fast and try to cram a 45-minute presentation into a 30-minute time slot by speaking at machine gun pace. You might just as well stay at home.
Don’t use any acronyms without spelling them out and explaining what they mean.
Don’t read from text bullets in your slides. If you have to use text bullets, keep them very short and very few per slide, then first let the audience read it and then expand on the subject using your own words.
Don’t use complete sentences in your slides. Your voice shall tell the story, and the slides shall only support it.
The above understanding we conclude that Seminar is one kind of discussion that aims to discuss a problem so get the way out. we can master the presentation seminar that someone must have body language mastering the stage and skill that occupy. In any presentation body language, proper eye contact is necessary.Looking at one person all the time and speaking won’t get others attention to your presentation.You should be looking at all .Now at the same time, the way you are moving your hands ,your eyes according to the situation makes people more attracted towards your presentation and involve the audience in presentations such as question and answer and others.
