TITLE Presentation Techniques

LEVEL D - Doctoral Workshops/Symposium

ECTS CREDITS Not Applicable

DEPARTMENT Doctoral School

DESCRIPTION This workshop will outline the skills needed to maximise personal communications and present messages efficiently and coherently. The different elements needed for maximising personal communications will be delved into and will include verbal and non-verbal communications, presentation media (when to use presentation media, what to use, and how), and the various preparatory phases needed for creating presentations. Participants will be asked to prepare a ten-minute presentation, preferably related to an element of their research, and to deliver it in front of the group during the following workshop session. Each presentation will be peer and tutor analysed so that each participant receives individual feedback on his/her performance.


By the end of this workshop, doctoral researchers should be able to:

- better understand how to give presentations that convey the message intended by the presenter;
- be more aware of the nuances of non-verbal communications;
- maximise the use of voice and body language as means of communications;
- evaluate audiences and their needs, to then apply these to communication solutions;
- discern what media will aid personal communications.

ADDITIONAL NOTES This workshop is split into two parts – Part 1 and Part 2. Attendance is required in both parts.
