Description.  This workshop will prepare students to effectively present academic information. Academic presentations are often thought of as conference presentations, however, 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 approach to layout and design for communicating information during an oral presentation.


Learning Outcomes. Upon completion, students will 

  • understand layout and design for an effective oral presentation; 
  • gain basic strategies for dealing with stage fright; 
  • understand basic strategies for presenting statistical information (for students in the natural and social sciences); 
  • learn strategies for successfully handling questions following an oral presentation.
