Presenting Your Expertise
This interactive session for graduate students will provide participants with an overview of effective presentation skills broken down into three components: (1) planning and structuring a presentation; (2) slide design & visualization; and (3) presentation delivery. Activities include drafting the main message of a job market presentation or elevator speech, and practicing verbal delivery. Take-away materials include a presentation checklist, a presentation design worksheet, and a handout on allaying the anxiety of presenting. The session will emphasize presenting work at conferences and during job market interviews, and will highlight practical resources that participants can implement immediately in their practice. The workshop will be facilitated by Ian Althouse, Assistant Director of Graduate Student Programs and Services.
