CONTENT
Your presentation is perfect, your ideas are amazing, and you have already figured out what to wear to your English-language conference. But how are you supposed to talk to people there? How do Anglophones talk about their research during meeting breaks and over lunch? How do you introduce a speaker, or worse, how do you begin once someone has introduced you? As a moderator, how do you help the Q&A flow after each talk? Learn a few good phrases, some tips, and hone your “elevator pitch” in this workshop geared at students, scholars, and academics at any stage in their research career.

TARGET GROUP
Bachelor’s and master’s students

COMPETENCY GOALS
