Academic Oral Presentations: Presenting as a Scholar
July 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
How does one give a successful oral presentation? “Make eye contact,” “be confident,” “dress professionally”… The advice that we often receive tends to focus on the performance aspect of presenting, rather than viewing it as an opportunity to communicate and further our research. In this workshop, we invite you to re-think oral presentations as part of the collaborative research process and scholarly communication. That is, instead of pursuing a fluent and error-free oral presentation, take the presentation as an opportunity to join a scholarly conversation, receive feedback, and fine-tune your research. This workshop aims to help participants develop a better understanding of how to engage in scholarly conversations through oral presentations.
Facilitator: Dr. Xuan Zhang, Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication
