Presentation Skills Workshop

What makes a good scientific presentation? In this 3-hour interactive workshop, we will collectively answer this question in three parts. The first section will focus on slide preparation and rehearsal, with emphasis on format and narrative. In the more interactive second part, we will explore the characteristics of good delivery, as well as how to deal with Q&A. Finally, the benefits of feedback and reflection will be addressed in the third section. Knowledge gained from this workshop will provide participants with new perspectives to improve their slide preparation and delivery skills. Participants are requested to bring a computer, tablet, or smartphone that can access the internet.
