Course content: This half day course will look at the purpose of a presentation and how to choose an effective medium and venue to get a research message across to a public audience. It will be highly interactive, using methods from stand-up comedy, and will give all participants the opportunity to develop, practice and present their own short piece. The course is designed specifically for research staff and students who are very hesitant about speaking in front of the public. The course will cover techniques to overcome nerves, the importance of rehearsal and how to deal with unexpected questions.
Capacity: 8 places. To apply please email a short paragraph (approx. 60 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org briefly outlining your background, why you would like to take part in the course and what you would hope to gain from it.
