CONTENT
In this hands-on workshop targeted to the humanities, students will have the opportunity to improve their academic presentations while building a presentation relevant to their studies. The mechanics of presenting will be covered, including facial expressions, vocal quality, body language, pronunciation, and intonation. We will also discuss ways of overcoming presentation anxiety. Particular attention will be given to presentation patterns and emotive elements adding persuasive value. Students will participate in peer review and engage in constructive criticism. By the end of this workshop, students will be better able to meet the needs of academic audiences, present their findings in a scholarly way, and communicate with more confidence.

TARGET GROUP
Bachelor’s and master’s level students
