Cancelled! Workshop: Presentation in an Academic Context



Workshop overview
Whether networking at a conference, presenting a poster or delivering a talk, being able to communicate clearly and confidently is a necessity for researchers. With a few fundamental strategies, presentation of complex data can be made simple, interesting and relevant.

In this workshop participants will learn how to create an audience tailored presentation, from presentation structure and storyline, to figure and slide design. Additionally, through the use of voice and body language exercises, students will improve their communication skills, enabling them to present with ease and confidence.
The following topics will be covered:

Presentation structure:
Figure construction and professional slide design

Body language:
How to be confident and persuasive

Voice training:
Projection and voice modulation

The nerves:
Strategies for managing stage fright

The question period:
Dealing with difficult situations

In this workshop, all participants will be filmed giving a short presentation. Individual presentation analysis will be performed and participants will receive their individually filmed presentations at the end of the workshop.
Due to the interactive nature of the workshop, a maximum of 12 participants are possible. The Presentation in an Academic Context workshop is offered as either a 1 or 2-day program (8 hours per day) that can be tailored to specific groups.
