Making a conference presentation and its role in developing research and academic networks
This training is part of a series on communicating research with impact. This training is open to all ESRC and non-ESRC funded PhD and MA Social Research students within the WRDTP’s seven partner universities. PGRs from all seven interdisciplinary Pathways are welcome to attend.
Giving an effective conference presentation is essential in the process of research, and for developing a profile and reputation within an academic community. This session will focus on the practice, performance, and strategy of conference presentations. It will begin by examining the purpose of conference presentations in terms of developing and disseminating research, getting critical feedback, building networks, and developing a profile in your field. The nature of type of conferences will be discussed. The workshop will then focus on the techniques of presenting research, including tips on good practice and things to avoid, as well as considering how best to deal with questions and comments after a presentation.
