On March 4th, The Supporting Office for Female Researchers hosted a “Seminar for Technical Acquisition of Effective Presentation in English”.
【Venue】Lecture room Y-33, Multidisciplinary Research Building, Kofu Campus
① How should a presentation approach for Japanese audiences and overseas audiences be different?
② Practical exercise
③ Effective designing of visual materials
【Lecturer】: Tomoko Kawakami (Representative of Link Science)
【Number of participants】: 23(14 researchers, including 9 female researchers and 9 graduate/undergraduate students including 5 female students)
This workshop, which includes practical exercise, normally requires a whole day to hold, but was specially cut down to two hours.
The lecture seemed to have been an immediate effect for researchers and students who have many opportunities to make presentations in English.
The feedback from the participants’ questionnaires were, for example, “I was able to find the expression which I had been searching for.”, “It was useful information for me to make presentation materials.”, “I felt like participating in a whole-day workshop to acquire the technique.”, and we were sure that the contents had met the participants’ expectation.
Thank you all for your participation.
