REGARD Workshop: Confident research presentations

By Siara Isaac, Teaching Support Centre, EPFL

Description et objectifs
This participative workshop is designed to support participants in becoming excellent speakers. Specifically, it will assist you with:
  • Effectively employing verbal and non-verbal skills for 2-directional communication
  • Conveying more confidence and assurance
  • Preparing for questions
  • Strategies for communicating across disciplinary or cultural groups
  • Designing presentations to support a clear, memorable take-away message
  • Identifying a few key areas for you to improve your presentation skills
Participants will work individually and in small groups on a variety of reflective and practical exercises designed to assist them in transferring the skills to their own presentations. Each participant will give a 5-minute presentation on her research, or an aspect of her work, which will be video-recorded. Constructive, individual feedback is a collaborative product of the group.
