This year, UON’s Learning Development team is running a series of advanced speaking workshops for postgraduate students!
These sessions are for postgraduate students from all faculties, especially those currently doing original research. Emphasis is on international students, but local students are also completely welcome.
You will have substantial control over which skills are covered in this course, but it is expected the skills practiced will include speaking with your supervisor, presenting at confirmation/conferences, networking, and seminar discussion.
Each week, there will be ample opportunity to talk with other research students. This will involve both practice of effective speaking in a research context and exposure to other people’s experiences/challenges/strategies. Both should contribute to greater confidence, self-awareness and skill.
