Technical Abstract: When the communication of scientific or technical information occurs in a public space, effective speakers follow a formula for content delivery. Participant observation of 11 presentations during a 2009 Field Day and content analysis of videotaped faculty and scientists’ oral performances generated suggested best practices: distribution of keyword outline of content/findings, use of a microphone, highlighting importance of presentation during introductory and concluding content, and using scientific and laymen’s terminology concurrently.
