Office of Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activities (ORSCA). The event is held annually to recognize student accomplishments in research, scholarship, and creative activities, and to provide a local forum for our students to gain experience in delivering a professional presentation. The top undergraduate or graduate student are awarded the "Gamma Epsilon Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi Travel Award" to fund future registration and expenses for attending a professional conference. Also, about 10 students are invited to present at a subsequent Annual CSU Student Research Competition. Email ORSCA for updates.
Designed for presenters of scholarly or data-intensive content, Better Presentations details essential strategies for developing clear, sophisticated, and visually captivating presentations. With a range of clear examples for what to do (and what not to do), Jonathan Schwabish shares the best techniques to display work and win over audiences.
Many other presentation books on the market are aimed at people in business. This book is aimed specifically at postgraduate research students. Undergraduate books in the area (such as the author's Palgrave book), do not cover the specifics of presenting at a postgraduate conference - this book does (including writing your abstract, submitting your paper, preparing your presentation and visual aids, speaking to your audience, handling questions).
Using a clear and concise workshop-like approach, you’ll learn to: brainstorm ideas create an abstract craft a biography organize and structure content practice your presentation prepare to present to an audience. Speaker Camp covers the mechanics of presenting material onstage, managing an audience, and how to approach making updates and revisions to presentations after you’ve given them. You’ve got a lot to say, and people deserve to hear it!
This book gives you tips on how to make your presentation clear and accessible, how to interact with your audience and how to retain their interest while keeping your anxiety under control. Naomi Karten has used her vast experience - both positive and negative - on the front lines of public speaking to provide key advice (and many chuckles ) in this engrossing read for the technical professional.
