Telling your Story: Preparing and Presenting your research
You’ve put in the hours and completed the research, but how do you tell people about it? In this workshop you will learn how to turn a large research project into a bite-sized presentation that outlines all the information while encouraging a deeper conversation. We will look at tips and tricks to sum up your work for colleagues and for laypeople, we will look at tools such as Prezi and PowerPoint for presentation aids, and how to preserve these materials online so that your work can speak for itself to large audiences.
