September 12Strategies for designing and delivering a scientific presentation (by Matt Carter, Assistant Professor of Biology and Author of “Designing Science Presentations: A Visual Guide to Figures, Papers, Slides, Posters, and More”)

Delivering a clear, engaging scientific presentation that is able to be understood by others requires multiple design and communication skills.  In this one-hour talk/workshop, we will discuss strategies for organizing complex scientific information into a simple narrative, using Powerpoint or Keynote software to visually communicate scientific concepts, and improving verbal and nonverbal delivery during a scientific talk.  Open to anyone, particularly important for senior biology honors thesis students.
