Advanced Technical Presentation Techniques
Lausanne, Tuesday 1 April 2014
Presenting technical information to an audience is one of the hardest tasks any scientist can face. Presenting effectively is not a natural talent for most people. Indeed, many technical presentations utterly fail in their primary objective — to convey a complex idea or argument clearly and convincingly. This class explains — and demonstrates — the key techniques that combine to produce an effective and enjoyable technical presentation. All participants, from master or PhD students to lab heads will benefit from the techniques presented in this course.
The class is taught by Damian Conway, a well-known speaker (see his official biography or his Wikipedia page). This course was already organized by the SIB in Lausanne in 2010, 2011 and 2012 and the feedback from the students was by far the best we ever got for any SIB course.
A more detailed description of the course is available at http://damian.conway.org/Courses/Presentation.html. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any question.
There is no pre-requisite for this course. The number of seats is limited.
