This is fourth and last session of 4-part preparation series for Grad Thesis SLAM
Every speaker has their own unique style and research story. Learn how to be your best as you prepare to present your research at the 2022 GRAD Thesis SLAM, a modified version of the Three Minute Thesis (3 MT) competition that provides doctoral students an opportunity to present their research to general audiences in three minutes. You will learn, apply, and practice essential presentation skills working solo and with other students. Homework assignments and additional learning materials will help you build your three-minute talk. Even if you don’t compete, join us to discover how to become a more confident, engaging, and compelling speaker.
During this session you will learn how to tame your nerves, warm up your voice, maximize your confidence and address common challenges that speakers face on stage. You will practice your talk virtually and receive peer feedback to help you get ready for your dry run.
