Have you ever struggled to prepare your presentation before a conference? Have you felt underwhelmed by the response you got after presenting your research? Sharing the results of your work is a fundamental part of every scientific career, but it is also a key skill for career building and networking. Research “dissemination” can take many forms and has a massive range of desired outcomes; from helping colleagues follow your work, to convincing funders to support you, to landing a fellowship in a laboratory, or just helping family members appreciate what you’ve been doing for the last few years.
Whether you are presenting your work in journal papers, classroom lectures, job applications, conference posters, public education events, grant proposals, media interviews, or the dinner table, we invite you to join Dr. Adrian Kelly and a guest panel for a one-hour workshop to discuss ways you can present your research to maximize the outcomes you want to achieve. The session will start off with a short presentation from Dr. Kelly on how to discuss your research as a narrative and will move to a panel question and answer with opportunities for participants to engage directly. Topics covered will include:
Helping readers/audience members situate your work in the context of the discipline
Creating an impression that highlights who you are and your main research interests
Highlighting your capabilities and skills with the needs of a prospective employer or funder
20-minute presentation from Dr. Adrian Kelly
40-Panel Discussion with Q&A (Edward Thomas - moderator)
Panelists: Dr. Adrian Kelly, Dr. Brigitte Vachon (McGill University), Dr. Jens Dilling (TRIUMF/UBC), Dr. Alexandra Pedersen (McDonald Institute)
