For students in the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences only.
The Effective Presenting 101 Series takes you through each of the basic steps needed to present effectively: honing content and creating trajectory, designing effective visuals, and developing a dynamic presence. Together these skills combine to increase the comprehension, credibility and connection needed to maximize your impact when presenting.
The first workshop, Content Development, helps you understand how a framework to interrogate audience and purpose can help refine content so that is accessible, interesting, and strategic. Additionally, you will learn detailed hook strategies and sequencing strategies for everything from a 3-minute to a 1-hour long presentation.
The second workshop, Body Language & Voice, focuses on understanding how to develop a dynamic presence that will help you overcome public speaking nerves. You will learn to appear confident and credible to your audience, while increasing engagement and clarity.
The third workshop, Effective Visuals, explores how to use PowerPoint and other technology to effectively supplement your talk, without interfering with people’s experience of listening to you. Sample slides for everything from methodology overviews, to results, to effective hooks will be shared to give you ideas about how to effectively develop visuals for your next presentation.
The workshops can be taken independently or as a series, depending on your needs and presentation goals.
