Presentation Skills Workshop:
What makes a good scientific presentation? In this 2-hour interactive online workshop, participants will collectively explore slide preparation and rehearsal, with emphasis on format and narrative. Participants will also practice the characteristics of good delivery, as well as how to deal with Q&A sessions. Knowledge gained from this workshop will provide participants with new perspectives to improve their slide preparation and delivery skills. We will also address how to adapt your presentation style to a remote context.
*We ask our participants to come prepared with 3 slides from a recent scientific presentation. We will be working with these slides for several exercises throughout the workshop.
Who should attend?
Post-docs and Ph.D. students, from STEM and STEM related fields, who want to improve their skills and knowledge in teaching.
NOTE: In the past participants from other faculties have attended and benefited from the workshop and are welcome to come.
Who facilitates the workshops?
T-PULSE workshops are facilitated by Tomlinson Graduate Teaching Fellows, who are graduate students in the Faculty of Science, committed to improving the quality of teaching and learning of science at McGill. T-Pulse fellows will be available online to help the participants during the week before the workshop.
