Presentation course1

Presentations are perhaps one of the most daunting ways that we have to communicate our science. A good presentation can gain you useful feedback, valuable outreach and networking possibilities. A good presentation might secure project funding or maybe even your dream research position. A bad presentation will be forgotten. Some people are born with good presentation skills, but most of us need to learn them. Trial and error works, but good advice and practice is best.

Resclim and ClimateSnack are organizing a presentation course in Bergen 3-5 February 2014. The course will be run by Matt Mcgarrity from the University of Washington, Seattle, where he is a Senior Lecturer in the Communication. Matt teaches classes on public speaking, argumentation, debate, political humor, communication education, and the history of rhetoric. His free online public speaking course recently enrolled over 120,000 students from over 200 countries. He has won a number of teaching awards, including the National Speakers' Association's Outstanding Professor Award.

The aim is that by the end of the course, the participants will be able to plan and deliver conference presentations that peopleremember.
