Mastering Scientific Presentations

5-6 October 2020, online via Zoom

Giving presentations is an important part of sharing your work and achieving recognition in the scientific communities.

Many scientific presentations suffer from too little clarity and too much content, however. Lecturers too often run through the slides, lose their audience at the very beginning. You should learn to deliver a clear presentation by setting distinct goals and finding vivid examples that make your talk “sticky” and memorable.

This workshop will help you to articulate your thoughts and ideas with confidence, competence and clarity in any setting.

Methods: Mixture of trainer input, practical exercises, participants’ presentations and discussion. Each participant sends in a sample presentation before and will conduct a 3-5 minutes’ excerpt of one of his talks. You have a chance to learn from feedback and from video analysis.

Preparation required: In order to participate you will have to come prepared for a 3 minutes’ scientific sample talk of yours and send in a set of presentation slides to the trainer. Further information follows before the seminar starts.
