While sharing your science effectively is key to a successful career, putting together and delivering a talk can be an intimidating and nerve-wracking exercise. Whether we have a lot, very little, or no experience giving talks, there is always room for improvement.
“Share Your Research: How To Give A Good Talk” is the newest iBiology free 5-week online course. We have interviewed 15 scientists about their process of giving a research talk, so you don’t have to! Hear from practicing scientists and professional science communicators about how to give an engaging talk.
When you take our new course, you will learn to think of your talk as a story and master storytelling techniques. You will be able to define the core message and goal of your talk as well as tailor them to your audience.
Our course starts by giving you a framework to define the foundations of a compelling talk. We present you with key concepts to outline and structure your talk, design your slides, and tips to keep your audience’s attention.
Not only do we give you the tools to build a strong slide deck, but we also help you improve your delivery and develop strategies to deal with the dreaded Q&A session and much more!
At the end of the 5 weeks, you will have a detailed plan outlining your research talk applicable to any future speaking engagement.
