Presenting your research - OLET5401

Year - 2020

This OLE will teach the basic skills of presenting your research to an audience of researchers with a focus on oral presentation skills. Students completing the OLE will learn how to present to specialist and generalist audiences. Topics will include effective use of eye contact, voice, posture and gesture, language and visual materials to instruct, inform and entertain an audience. Students will critique video of existing presentations, upload their own practice presentations and give feedback to fellow students on their presentations. After completing this OLE students will be in a good position to enter the 3MT competition where research students describe their research in a 3 minute presentation.
