Crafting Presentations III: Presentation Games

March 24, 2015
Scaife Hall 214 (tentative)

This is the third in a three-part series on preparing strong presentations for audiences outside your field.

Workshop 1: Being in the Moment

4:00-5:30 PM

One of the most difficult aspects of live presentations is focusing on the audience and not on your content or your delivery. In this workshop, we'll try to get you out of your head and into the moment by playing some games, many of which come from improvisational theater.

Workshop 2: Delivery

5:45-7:15 PM

Good delivery consists largely of getting rid of habits, but sometimes we aren’t even aware of what our habits are. In this workshop, we'll help you identify an area to improve and to find ways to make your delivery more effective.

Register for either or both of the workshops here.

Blogging Club (ongoing)

Science Non-Fiction

Every Thursday, 5:30-6:30 PM
Gates/Hillman 6708

We blog at ScienceNonFiction.org about pothole physics, why computers in Denver make more mistakes, the ethics of animal research, and more. Occasionally articles get picked up, but mostly we write for our own practice at writing. If you want to share your excitement about research and work on articles with a friendly group, come join us for one of our weekly meetings!
