This course will enable students to turn the salient points of their research into a clear and compelling presentation. We will learn how to do four things: create meaningful content, simplify specialised language, design attractive slides, and find one’s own voice. Students will do three presentations during the course as well as practice speaking each class in different practical tasks. Finally, we will handle the protocols of handling questions professionally.
