2-day interactive workshop for early-stage PhD students
Are you struggling to talk about your research? Do your arguments seem vague and elusive? Communicating Your Research with Confidence helps early-stage PhD students develop, refine, and present their research ideas in a supportive environment. We’ll explore techniques for boosting creativity, communicating research to different audiences, and dealing with feedback. Through a range of activities, you’ll clarify your objectives and build a compelling research narrative.
By the end of the workshop, you’ll have:
A clear understanding of your research questions
Experience of communicating your research to others
Techniques for giving and receiving constructive feedback
More confidence in talking about your research in different contexts
A peer support group
