Registration Closed / Past Event


This workshop on presentation skills is designed for participants who expect to present their research within academia, organizational departments, or at conferences. Participants might also consider joining if they are preparing to defend a thesis or dissertation, or if taking part in job interviews. This workshop will enable participants to increase their confidence and try new approaches in any presentation setting. We will collaboratively explore models for effective presentations and apply these during short presentations delivered by participants. We will also discuss fears and challenges with public speaking and test strategies to overcome nervousness during presentations.

Following completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Plan, organize and deliver an effective presentation, and
  2. Apply strategies to reduce nervousness during public speaking.

Facilitators: Jens Vent-Schmidt and Walid Abdelmagid
