Webinar Description: Presenting is an integral part of being a scientist whether employed in academia, government or private industry. Although embedded as a regular task, a mastery of presenting is usually only gained through trial and error. Since presentations are not one size fits all, each attempt can be quite challenging. The myriad of different purposes for presentations such as sharing data, results, ideas, proposals etc. can increase the challenges even further. Although there are no universally accepted methods for creating and delivering presentations, there are general rules that can assist in achieving the target effectiveness. This webinar will reveal some approaches to enable scientists to successfully create and deliver various types of scientific presentations.
• learn about different types of presentations and the corresponding methods to create effective content
• understand the need for different approaches for delivery based on the purpose, content, audience and other considerations
• understand the contrasts between approaches for remote versus in-person presentations
