The Graduate School’s Brown Bag Series:  How to Present your Research

Wednesday February 10, 2016 │ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Lake Shore Campus | Granada Center, Room 420

Graduate students are invited to bring a lunch to this one-hour discussion and learn techniques, suggestions, and tips that will help graduate students present their research. A panel of previous winners from the Interdisciplinary Research Symposium for Graduate School Students will join the discussion and explore issues such as, how to frame your research to an audience outside your discipline, how to link your research to larger societal issues, and how to engage your audience through public speaking and visual aids. Students are requested to RSVP for the event.
