Secrets to a Terrific Technical Talk


Time: Friday, May 15, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Location: Zoom link provided upon registration

During Prof. Anderson's webinar, you will learn the essential differences between giving an oral presentation and writing a technical paper or report. The secrets are in the stuff you do ahead of time, and in understanding the differences between hearing information and reading it. The talk will cover how to plan, present, and most importantly, how to design your visual aids to get your message across. Prof. Anderson will also point out common errors and tell some great horror stories. Finally, attendees will learn how to handle the highly stressful question-and-answer period. This talk focuses on the presentation of technical data and is geared towards an audience of those who use numerical data, graphs and charts in presenting their research.  It will be beneficial for those in engineering, sciences, health sciences, mathematics, economics, social sciences and other similar fields.

*Dr. Anderson delivered this talk in January 2020 at an OUAB-sponsored event. This event is an online version of that talk and will cover the same content.
