In the first of four sessions, graduate students will learn the basics of presentation design and delivery appropriate for contexts such as research group and conference presentations. The following session will be devoted to instructor and peer evaluation of the slides students create outside the workshop. For the final sessions, workshop participants will be divided into small groups to give individual ten-minute presentations.  While one student presents, the others in the group will evaluate the delivery and slide design and then provide written and oral feedback. Each presentation will be filmed so the students will have a record of it. This workshop is offered three times per year, including in the summer.
