This workshop focuses on how scholars can best convey the value and significance of their work through oral communication, emphasizing not only typical structures of thought and expressions in English, but also an audience’s expectations. The focus of the workshop is on the formal conference panel presentation and the question-and-answer session, and includes sections on the presentation structure, attention-getting openers, visual aids, and linguistic cues for the audience (signposting language). We also discuss and practice networking, small talk, the elevator speech, and introduction speeches.
