Communicating Research - Preparation for conference presentations and competitions (3 Minute Thesis)
- Edinburgh Campus
In this second workshop - a follow up to Presentation Skills A - we continue developing the key themes such as good design and great timing by exploring the techniques you need to engage with larger conference audiences. We begin our journey by concentrating on the skills needed to inform and delight audiences through short, creative presentations such as Three Minute Thesis and FameLab, so anyone wishing to take part in these national competitions is strongly advised to attend this workshop. We will also work on using these techniques to build a longer conference presentation to connect with a large audience in a very big hall!
At the end of the workshop you should be able to:
- understand the requirements and be ready to build a great three minute presentation
- realise the need to use design thinking techniques to enhance your content with great visual and sensory information
- connect with a variety of audience types both with great content and with great theatre!
