SMP Pathway Director, Dr Simon Mollan, talks about how students can improve their academic presentation skills
Giving an effective conference presentation is essential in the process of research, and developing a profile and reputation within an academic community.
This recorded session focuses on the practice, performance, and strategy of conference presentations. It begins 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 and type of different conferences and presentation scenarios is covered and discussed, with the lecture then focusing 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.
