SAGE are running two workshops this semester which are open to PGRs from across the Faculty of Humanities
Developing Confident Presentation Skills
This course will look at confidence building techniques, running through relaxation techniques, visualisation, body language and discussing the obstacles that can prevent you from achieving your best in giving a presentation or in a group situation. The aim is for you to develop your own confident presentation style to enable you to enjoy giving a presentation. The course will finish with the opportunity to do a short presentation to a small group, and gain feedback on how you appeared.
Suitable for: Postgraduate (Research)
09:30 – 04:30 Samuel Alexander, room A104. Lunch will be provided
Oral History and Interviews workshop
This course provides basic training in carrying out interviews and taking oral histories. You will look at different types of interviews, the advantages and disadvantages of using interviews, how to structure interviews and also have an opportunity to look at some of the technology used in taking interviews, and learning how to use it. There will be lunch at the end of the session.
