Scholarly Skills Workshop: Learning to Love the Conference Spotlight (Virtual Session)
The Faculty of Graduate Studies will be hosting a series entitled Scholarly Skills. Join us for our second workshop!
Are you submitting to your first academic conference? Looking to brush up on your public speaking or turn that research paper into an engaging talk? Curious about the difference between a conference paper, poster, or panel? Maybe you want some tips for stage fright or tricky Q&A sessions, or you’re trying to decide between a slide deck or handout, or curious about accessibility and universal design. Wherever you are in your degree, it’s crucial to know how to communicate your ideas and capture your audience’s ear.
FGS’ Dean & Vice Provost, Alice MacLachlan, has given over 100 scholarly talks, and has presented her scholarship to public audiences on national TV and radio. Join her for an online workshop on presentation skills, get expert advice about graduate and scholarly conferences, and hear stories about how to nail that talk – even when things slip off the rails! We’ll share stories, overcome fears, and figure out strategies for getting that key idea across.
