PLAN Workshop- What Do you Mean You'd Like Me to Present My Research?

Description. This workshop will prepare students to effectively present their research at an academic conference or other public forum.  While students are often expected to present research at academic conferences, this workshop also will prepare students for a successful thesis or dissertation defense.  Students will learn practical strategies for dealing with stage fright as well as the best strategies for communicating information during an oral presentation. Finally, we will briefly discuss the differences between an oral presentation and a poster presentation. Students will learn practical strategies for creating and presenting scientific posters and also how to handle the author session for discussing their poster during an academic conference.

Learning Outcomes. As a result of this session, participants will be able to:

1. understand layout and design strategies for effective oral and poster presentations

2. gain basic strategies for dealing with stage fright

3. understand basic strategies for presenting statistical information (for the natural and social sciences)

4. learn strategies for successfully handling questions following an oral presentation.
