Would you like to get new insight and expert tips for communicating your science and managing yourself during scientific presentations? How about an opportunity to create, deliver, and get feedback on your presentations? Join us for a two-part training in scientific presentation skills with an expert trainer in scientific communication. You’ll learn about yourself and best practices, build and deliver a presentation, and get dedicated and individualised developmental feedback and reference material.

DDEA and Partners in Training (PinT) welcome you to this two-part course on scientific presentation skills training. Topics covered in the course include (but are not limited to):

  • Establishing presence & managing self
  • Designing impactful slides & understanding the medium of presentations
  • Building scientific story & making messages stick
  • Creating impactful openings & pitching science
  • Managing the Q&A & asserting authority

The training consists of two parts:

  1. A 60-minute webinar on 8, 9 or 12 February. The webinar will outline best practices and key considerations in terms of designing an impactful medical and scientific talk. The purpose of this activity is to ensure that you will arrive to the course with material that you can work on at the course.
  2. A two-day on-site course on 27-28 February. The highly practical course will provide participants with the chance to further develop and finesse their skills as communicators of complex science and data. Participants will have the opportunity to work with peers in delivering their own talks and receive expert training on best practices. For the peer work, discrete groups will be established in which participants will work together and assess one another according to a prescribed feedback rubric. These groups will be organised according to the participants’ research interests. The final output of the course will be for each participant to deliver a ~10-minute presentation tailored to your defined audience and be given feedback, coaching, and advice on how to present effectively. If you wish, your talks can be filmed. These presentations will be arranged in a series of self-contained symposia.

Overall, the training will be highly interactive, participant-driven, and hands-on in which the participants will further heighten their knowledge, skills, and behaviours in relation to presenting medical and scientific data. The skills training will provide a clear approach to preparing presentations and an easy-to-follow strategy for the effective delivery of presentations and communication of data to the medical and scientific community.
