Presentation Skills for Postdoctoral Fellows
As spring conference season looms closer many of us will be thinking about our ability to effectively convey information in an engaging manner. Join Sanders Whiting from the Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC) for this 2-hour session. In a friendly setting you will be learning some basic tips about:
- Voice production,
- Presentation stance and gestures,
- Rate of speech, using pauses, and confidence.
Participants will take turns presenting their text in front of the group, receive friendly feedback from Sanders and then repeat sections of their presentation. It's a fun atmosphere where you can build your presentation confidence.
When: Monday, March 23rd from 2-4pm
