This course focuses on how international students can improve their presentation skills.
Giving academic presentations can be very challenging for students, particularly if English is not their first language. This course aims to help students become more skilful and confident academic presenters. It will focus on three key features of presentations: content, design, and delivery. The course is primarily for international students who will need to give presentations on their programmes.
Classes will involve tutor input, individual tasks and pair or small group work. During the course, students will have the opportunity to give presentations on academic topics of their choice but adapted for a non-specialist audience. To help students improve, the presentations will be critically evaluated by the tutor and classmates. The tutor’s feedback will include comments on pronunciation and language. All materials will be provided.
There will be a maximum of 10 students in a class.
By the end of the course, students should:
Tuesdays from 24 October 2017 16:10pm-18:00pm (4 weeks)
Thursdays from 26 October 2017 16:10pm-18:00pm (4 weeks)
Paterson’s Land, Holyrood Road.
All international students currently studying at Edinburgh University. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
