If you don’t know how to present your research – let alone effectively – the idea of doing so can feel daunting. This practical two-part course first takes you through the process of preparing an effective research presentation: from knowing the preliminary key questions to ask and the simple but effective way to structure your introduction, to handling nerves and questions and now, tips on how to present effectively online.
Because we learn best by practising and receiving feedback, in the second part, participants will then have the opportunity to upload a 5-minute presentation they have recorded and receive short 1-2-1 coaching to improve their presentations.
This workshop will run online on Monday 30th November from 9.30am to 12.30pm, and will be followed by a shorter 1-2-1 consultation on Monday 7th December.
This workshop will be led by Matt Lane from The Researcher Development Partnership. An AHRC-sponsored musicologist by training, Dr Matt Lane was the researcher developer for arts, humanities and social science PhDs at the University of Cambridge, 2010-18. In 2017, he was formally recognised by Cambridge for his ‘outstanding contribution’ to the development of early career researchers. Now the director of The Researcher Development Partnership, Cambridge, and based on his own experiences of doing a PhD, his ‘calling’ is to help alleviate the stress of research. As a result, he specialises in helping researchers to nurture their wellbeing, cultivate their writing abilities, as well as developing research leaders of the future.
