Oral Presentation Skills for Students

Oral Presentation Skills for Students

Sunday 18th August 10:00-17:00
Contacts: Alice Williams
Price: 30€

Booking closed/Fully booked - 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. In the first part of this workshop, participants will receive professional training in techniques for preparing and delivering an effective scientific presentation. The second part of the workshop will be devoted to giving students the opportunity to practise, get feedback and work on their Goldschmidt talks in small groups (4-5 students) led by post-docs and senior grad students experienced in giving oral presentations. Help and guidance will be available for students whose first language is not English. A workshop manual will be provided in advance to help students prepare their presentations before arriving in Barcelona. Priority will be given to students giving an oral presentations at Goldschmidt2019.


Best Practices in Academic Publishing

Monday 19th August 13:00-14:15
Contacts: Rebecca Neely, Tessa de Roo, Gabriel Filippelli, Carlos Toro, Liane Benning
Location: Room 118+119, CCIB View on map
Price: 10€

The aim of this workshop is to provide information on how to successfully publish your research and how to review manuscripts. A panel of editors will share their perspective on such matters as:

  • How to start the process of getting your paper published
  • How to navigate the ethical pitfalls of writing scientific papers
  • How the peer review process works
  • Recovering from reviewers comments – revise and reply
  • How to be a great reviewer
Attendees are invited to interact with the panel and ask questions to learn more about the publishing and reviewing process.


Interactive teaching methods

Monday 19th August 13:00-14:15
Contacts: Heather Stoll
Location: Room 120+121, CCIB View on map
Price: 10€

In this workshop, students and early career participants will experience a series of active learning activities appropriate for Geochemistry courses. In our “interactive” classroom, we show how to minimize passive (professor lecture to student notebook) teaching and instead set up students to build understanding of concepts and techniques through group work emphasizing peer discussion and debate, and joint problem solving. The approaches we describe are apt for transforming traditional lecture schedule blocks of dozens of students, in traditional lecture halls.

Most scientists don't have the training or connections they need to communicate about their work beyond their peers. This workshop will introduce scientists to tools they need to make their communication more effective. The training begins with a brief overview of communications principles, and then introduces the Message Box and the idea of tailoring your message to your audience. The training culminates with media interview scenarios.

A light lunch is included in the ticket price, this is subsidised and so places are limited to the first 50 applicants. You may attend without a ticket in which case lunch will not be provided.

Price: 10€

Dual-career issues are increasingly important in higher education today. Over 70 percent of faculty are in dual-career relationships; more than a third are partnered with another academic. This trend is particularly strong among women scientists, and junior academics of all genders. Universities are seeing an increasing number of high quality candidates for faculty positions partnered with another academic. This presents universities with a challenge, but also a great opportunity to diversify their faculty. The challenges and rewards for University administrations and dual career couples will be discussed and experiences shared.

Pop-Up Talks

Location: Flash Talk Theatre 1, CCIB View on map

Is there any aspect of your research or scientific life that you feel particularly passionate about? Do you feel like your inner voice needs to be heard? If so, we invite you to inspire us with your contagious story by giving a Pop Up Talk!

As a growing Goldschmidt tradition, Pop Up Talks are here to stay! These are meant to be brief and engaging presentations in which you are allowed to speak your mind. Talks may be about the wider impact of your research, the future of geochemistry, thrilling field work stories or any other thing you have learnt and experienced in your career so far.

How you want to present your talk is completely up to you! However, we especially encourage nonstandard presentations (e.g. video, music, poetry, or any other talent you want to showcase). Both individual and team performances are permitted. This year the time limit will be 3 minutes and if using regular PowerPoints - only one slide will be allowed, so plan for it wisely. Please be as creative as you can to get your message across! We want this event to be enjoyable for broader audiences, while making it a great learning and bonding experience for all the participants.

Watch some of the previous Pop Up Talks from Goldschmidt 2018:

“Back in Black” by Nikola Van de Wetering

“Targeting safe aquifers in Indus Basin, Pakistan” by Junaid Ali Khattak

“Cable bacteria: a wire-like bacteria transports electrons over long distance in sediment” by Tingting Yang

You can find more videos at the official Goldschmidt YouTube Channel

Interested in participating in this event? Please send us an email with the title of your talk and how you would like to present it to popup-talks@goldschmidt.info before the 2nd of August. Since slots are filled on a first come first serve basis, we encourage you to hurry and reserve your spot! Also remember that this is a special event, so you wouldn’t not have to choose between your regular abstract and participation in the Pop Up session and no fee is due.

Please email us if you have any questions at popup-talks@goldschmidt.info

Looking forward to your submissions!

Confidence is not a constant, public speaking can be daunting, and networking can be surreal.
