IPCITI 2016

 Workshop on Presenting Research Orally in English

 

Monday 12 December 2016: 9.30am to 1pm

Trainers: Dr. Marion Winters (Heriot Watt University) and Prof. Jenny Williams (Dublin City University).

Rationale

In a globalized world English has become the lingua franca of international academic conferences, with all the attendant pros and cons. While a lingua franca enables researchers from different language communities to understand and communicate with each other, it can disadvantage those for whom the language in question is not their native language, regardless of the quality of the content. It can be daunting enough to present your research to an international group of scholars. To do so in a foreign language adds an additional potential layer of difficulty.

Aim

The aim of the workshop is to provide training in delivering oral presentations of research in English for non-native English speakers. Drawing on their personal experiences, the trainers will share tips and tricks.  The workshop will be interactive and participants will have an opportunity to practise their skills as well as to receive and provide constructive criticism from their peers.

 

In order to maximize participation, the number of participants will be restricted to a maximum of 16, selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

Registration

The registration deadline for the workshop is Friday 18th November. Participants are requested to register by contacting both trainers by email: m.winters@hw.ac.uk and jenny.williams@dcu.ie

Registration is essential not only for catering and logistical purposes but, more importantly, because participants are required to complete a pre-workshop questionnaire. The questionnaire is designed to enable the trainers to tailor the workshop to the needs and wishes of the participants.

 

Please Note: Participants attending the workshop will be required to make a 5-minute presentation on their current research.
