The Writing and Communication Centre will be hosting its fall iteration of Speak like a Scholar from Monday, July 15th to Thursday, July 18th from 9am to 3pm each day.
This program 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 20-hour workshop will offer a combination of discussion 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.
Applications are due on June 14th, 2019. Apply to participate through Google Form.
