Presenters: Dr Shirley Cooper, LDC Development Team


** available for bookings from Friday, 10 January 2020


This half-day session offers practise in delivery to a small friendly audience in a supportive and friendly environment. You will deliver s short presentation and gain constructive feedback through a facilitated discussion that will also cover the issues that you face in formal presentations. Each presentation is videoed, which is a highly effective way to help you to review your own performance.

Note this is a small group workshop and has a limited number of places.

Specifically this workshop offers

  • Practice in the delivery of a short presentation to those outside your research field.

  • An opportunity to view your own performance and observe how you appear to your audience .

  • Constructive feedback on both the positive aspects of your delivery and suggestions for how you might improve for both the audience present and in more formal settings.

  • A chance to view other presentations from different subject areas and practise in delivering constructive feedback.


Preparation to participate in this session you will need to prepare a 5 minute presentation to present at the workshop. Further guidance is sent by email a week before the workshop. You will gain most benefit from this workshop if you have completed several months research and are preparing to present your work to colleagues. You will not need to present research findings or results in your presentation.


Previous participants have said:

'It was great to get positive, constructive feedback from different disciplines. Though I dislike being on camera, I admit that looking back at my own performance was very useful.'
