Pre- and post-conference field trips
Oral Presentation Skills for Students
Sunday 12th August 12:30 - 17:00
Contacts: Alice Williams
Giving a presentation at Goldschmidt can be a daunting prospect, particularly for those who are presenting at an international conference for the first time or whose first language is not English. During this afternoon workshop, students will have the opportunity to practise, get feedback, and work on their Goldschmidt talks in small groups led by young anglophone scientists experienced in giving oral presentations. The course will be a half-day and will be held in the Hynes centre so those attending can best prepare to give their talks in the same set up as will be used in the conference. Specific help and guidance will be provided for students whose first language is not English, and group leaders will be trained and coordinated by a professional English language instructor. A workshop manual will be provided in advance to help students design and prepare their presentations before arriving in Boston. Priority will be given to students giving an oral presentation at Goldschmidt2018. This course is supported by the GS.
