University of Waterloo's Writing and Communication Centre is now accepting applications to participate in a program for doctoral students: Speak like a Scholar! Speak like a Scholar is designed to help doctoral researchers develop their voices as independent scholars and give academic presentations such as dissertation defenses and conference papers with confidence.
This three-day workshop will take place over three weeks – on November 3rd, 10th, and 17th – and offer discussions and hands-on practice to address many aspects of giving oral presentations in an academic context: responding to questions, engaging in scholarly debate, overcoming presentation fears, and strategies for designing engaging presentations and delivering them effectively.
Space in Speak like a Scholar is limited, and program participants will be selected based on their applications. The deadline for applications is Monday, October 23rd at 4:00 p.m.
Apply to participate through Google Forms.
