STUDC Student Workshop - Presentation Skills Workshop
Friday, December 5, 1:00pm - 2:15pm
Adelaide Room, Sheraton Hamilton

You may or may not agree, but we feel that there can be a good Math talk, as well as a not-so-good Math talk! This workshop is designed to help participants improve the quality of their presentations, so audience members will fondly reminisce about their presentations. We will discuss some useful tips to keep in mind when preparing and during your talk, as well as for the aftermath of your talk. Differences between teaching and conference presentations will be heavily emphasized and we will include a discussion of the “dos and don’ts” of different types of presentations. After attending this workshop, participants will have all the tools to wow audiences of all forms.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required for this event, so register early!
