Clear, Concise and Confident: Creating Impact In Your Goldschmidt Presentation

Sunday 21st June 08:00-17:00
Contacts: Alice Williams, Edel O'Sullivan
Price: US$20/US$30

Does the idea of speaking at a conference send a chill down your spine? Do you feel like a “deer in the headlights”, your message lost in a trembling voice or a blank mind? Do you find it challenging to create clarity in your slides and in your words? This two-part workshop* aims to help participants to polish and perfect their presentations, build their self-confidence and “warm up” their voices to be heard at Goldschmidt 2020.
Part One - Overcoming Fear in Public-speaking The fear of public speaking is a very real and very debilitating situation for many people, and can present a major challenge in reaching career goals, both academic and non-academic. In today’s ultra-competitive world, confidence in presentations can represent a fine line between success and “try again.” In this interactive morning session, we will focus on identifying the primary reasons and triggers for fears in public speaking and address them with a combination of theoretical and practical methods to overcome fear, which can be continued and advanced by participants in their own time.
Part Two - Polishing your Goldschmidt Presentation In the afternoon, participants will be able to put into practice some of the techniques learnt, in rehearsals of their Goldschmidt orals, posters and flash talks. Working in small, friendly groups led by postdocs and senior grad students, participants will have the opportunity to get feedback on their presentations and to discuss tips and techniques for designing, structuring and delivering an effective scientific presentation. Help will be on hand for participants for whom English is not their first language, and a workshop manual will be provided in advance to help participants prepare their Goldschmidt presentation before arrival in Honolulu.
*Participants may register for one or both parts of the workshop. The ticket for one part is $20, the ticket for both parts is $30


Funding Workshop

This event kicks off with a panel based discussion and is followed up by tabling sessions where attendees will interact directly with each of the panelists in small groups.

Student Engagement in Higher Education

Tuesday 23rd June 12:45-14:00
Contacts: Laurent Valentin
Location: 318A+B View on map
Price: US$10

Student engagement (SE) is what a student brings to Higher Education in terms of goals, aspirations and values and how these are shaped by their experience as students. These include 1) Expressing individual opinions and ideas, 2) Taking an active role in academic life, 3) Collaborating with staff and students in decision-making over both the process and outcome. There are many different examples of students and staff working in partnership to co-create learning and teaching experiences. These initiatives include examples of students as co-researchers, students as change agents, students as consultants and students as co-creators of curricula. This workshop is designed to provide guidance and strategies for students and academic staff wishing to initiate, sustain or extend student-staff partnerships. The aims of the workshop are threefold, i) explore the ways in which students act as partners in learning and teaching, ii) identify strategic and sustainable practices of engaging students as partners, iii) discuss the risks and challenges inherent to partnership and find suggestions for addressing them.
