Presenting your research is an important skill for any researcher and it is a skill that is transferrable to the workplace after completion of a higher research degree. This session provides an introduction to the secrets of great research presentations, including aspects of powerful openings (e.g., 3MT or conferences), developing  persuasive arguments, adapting your presentation to your audience, slide and data presentation design, and handling audience questions.

Unlike our other CDF, Impactful Presentations, this session focuses on how to craft the content or message of your presentation whereas the former focuses on developing your personal presentation style (e.g., Powerpoint mistakes, pitch, and practicing the script).

May be eligible for CDS.

Presented by the Learning Advisors team of Student Services. Previously known as Introduction to Presentation Skills as well as Planning and Presenting Persuasive Research.

About Communication

Learning to communicate effectively is critical to your ability to transfer your knowledge and research, build relationships, and gain employment. As you progress in your career these skills will become more important. The ability to master verbal, non-verbal, interpersonal, and written communication will allow you to communicate with clarity and influence. ‘Effective communication’ also appears in almost every job advertisement as a skill required by employers.
