Want to be a more engaging speaker and hone your presentation skills? This workshop is for YOU.
Learn ‘how to’ (1 Mar) and ‘do’ (8 Mar) with our two sessions run by Dr Alan Crivellaro, an expert in helping young and experienced scientists to excel through the presentations they deliver and to boost their careers.
The Effective Scientific Presentations Workshop is a new and unique form of science communication training. It is built around the premise that delivering a scientific presentation is a central element for your career in science and a challenge for many researchers. Therefore, designing and delivering an effective scientific presentation needs extra effort and guidance. The workshop is not about “rules” in scientific speaking. You will understand your presentation style and how to improve it further. From crafting a story to handling the dreaded Q&A, there is guaranteed to be something to help you improve your presentations.
The Effective Scientific Presentations Workshop at Hughes Hall has been organized in two sessions:
• 1st session: Tuesday 1 March, 4-6 pm. Planning, designing and delivering your presentation.
• 2nd session: Tuesday 8 March, 4-5 pm. Practice a 3-minutes presentation and get feedback.
NOTE: IF YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO ATTEND THE 1ST SESSION BUT WANT TO SIGN UP TO THE 2ND SESSION, YOU ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND.
These workshops are being hosted by the HH Postdoc Research Group, and are open to HH college members only. Sign up essential, via Eventbrite click here
Dr Alan Crivellaro lives his professional life studying plants through the microscope and teaching. But he got frustrated with attending so many boring scientific presentations. Therefore he decided to take action to make a difference. After spending most of the last 20 years teaching and doing science in collaboration with scientists from five continents, in 2020, he created Presenting Scientists to help young and experienced scientists to excel through the presentations they deliver and to boost their careers.
