Conference Presentation

Students will learn to identify relevant calls for papers (ideally peer-reviewed); write a strong, engaging abstract or poster that pushes disciplinary boundaries and engages in global citizenship; participate in the peer-review process; develop a presentation and, where applicable, PowerPoint or other visual accompaniment; implement public performance techniques (organization of ideas, communication skills, time-management, body language, and so on); and, finally, become familiar with networks in the area(s) of expertise as well as with the important topics in the field, nationally and internationally.
