Sharing Science: Presenting Yourself and Your Work, Live

Friday, 14 February 2014: 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
Grand Ballroom F (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
Rather than sitting through yet another talk on how to deliver a talk, come to this interactive workshop, where you will develop variations on a succinct 90-second introduction to yourself and your research, suitable for a variety of career, teaching, networking, idea pitching, social, community, and online environments, far from a podium or projector. After a brief overview, participants will engage in a structured sequence of partner and small group activities to develop their own story, while practicing the skills to deliver it in an engaging and personable manner; providing as well as making use of constructive feedback. Participants will be encouraged and given resources to bring these workshop techniques back to their institutions.
