A CaRS session for undergraduates.

Designing and delivering a presentation or poster is not always something that people are comfortable with. This class will take you through the process from beginning to end and look at:

  • Deciding on content and structure
  • Slide design
  • Remembering what to say
  • Dealing with nerves
  • Presenting a good image of yourself
  • Dealing with disaster and questions

There is also the option to arrange a session practice your presentation in the future. You do not have to prepare for this session, but we will be tailoring it to the needs of the class, so you will be asked about your experiences and upcoming presenting engagements.
