Presenting Science Online is designed to help graduate students in the Faculty of Science communicate their research to a variety of audiences online. This three-part series will examine the keys to preparing any presentation: analysis of audience, purpose, organization and style. Limited to the Faculty of Science.
Each online workshop will run from 16:00-17:00, with 10 minutes dedicated to Q&A at the end. Post-workshop coaching and practice sessions will also be available if requested.
June 3: Strategic content development for any length presentation
June 10: How to develop effective visuals and utilize other online tools for conveying information
June 17: Issues of voice, body language, and presence online
Issues specific to online presentations —lighting, the use of a green screen, privacy concerns and other factors to consider when setting up to present effectively — will also be addressed.
We will examine all of these topics through the lens of their importance in maximizing the engagement, comprehension and impact of an online presentation.
