Learn to speak about your research with confidence!

Whether you are giving a conference presentation, a job talk, or defending your dissertation, as a graduate student you need to be able to speak with authority and knowledge about your research area, respond to questions, and engage in scholarly debate.

Speak like a Scholar is designed to help doctoral students develop their professional scholarly voices and give effective academic presentations with confidence. This program takes place online through LEARN over seven business days.

Discussions and hands-on practice addressing many aspects of giving oral presentations in an academic context will be offered. 

We’re planning a new, version of Speak Like a Scholar that will be launched in the Fall 2021 term. In the meantime, check out the WCC’s Design and Deliver workshops on LEARN!
