Being an excellent presenter can affect whether people are aware of and understand your scholarship. With the added complexity of virtual meetings, giving online presentations requires a different level of preparation and presentation skills to stay connected with a remote audience. Whether you are presenting to a specific audience or to the general public, how you present can increase your impact as a scholar and educator and can also help you gain funding for your research. In this session, you will learn best practices for preparing and delivering academic presentations in person and virtually for a variety of audiences. The session will be led by Eric Schnure, executive communications professional and former White House speechwriter.
