This seminar is designed to give graduate students training and experience in delivering effective oral presentations in various academic and nonacademic settings. In addition to focusing on the content, structure, and delivery of oral presentations, we highlight certain aspects of public speaking, including body language, volume, intonation, and gestures, to help improve overall presentation skills. We practice short, conference-like talks, job talks, and lectures. The seminar includes attending talks and/or lectures on campus to learn the dos and don’ts of public oral presentations, as well as plenty of time for individual practice. The schedule of meetings is determined based on the need and schedule of everyone in the class.
