Open to all Pathways

Date and time: Wednesday 30 January 2019, 1.30pm – 3.00pm

Location: the Boardroom, ICoSS, 219 Portobello, University of Sheffield

Giving an effective conference presentation is essential in the process of research, and developing a profile and reputation within an academic community.

This session will focus on the practice, performance, and strategy of conference presentations. We 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 and type of different conferences and presentation scenarios will be discussed. The lecture 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.
