Academic Presentation Skills
|Dates:||7 December 2018|
|What is it:||Workshop|
This workshop aims to provide tools to improve presentation skills in academic settings. The combination of lecture and group activities will enables the participants on the one hand need to identify shortcomings in their own presentation skills and on the other hand to improve their performance for future academic conferences and presentations.
We will cover topics such as material preparation, how to find a good introduction and conclusion for presentations, a better use of visuals, body language and how to prepare for Q&A.
The first half of the course consists of an interactive lecture capturing important aspects of the aforementioned topics. After a lunch break the participants will then engage in previously prepared mini-presentations and constructive feedback sessions. For this participants are asked to prepare a very short presentation (max. 3 min) on a topic of their choice, aimed at a non-specialist audience.
No previous experience is required for participation. This workshop is presented by Tina Hannemann, a Research Associate at the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research at the University of Manchester.
