Academic Oral Presentations: Presenting as a Scholar

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. By analyzing authentic examples of academic oral presentations and practicing with peers, participants of this workshop will develop a better understanding of how to develop their research and engage in scholarly conversations through oral presentations. This workshop is designed for undergraduate students who speak English of any proficiency. Graduate students are also welcome.
