10am–Noon: Creating Your Elevator Speech

Digital scholars spend a lot of time thinking and working on digital projects, but how do we talk about them? Sometimes you may only have a few minutes to talk about your research and the work that has gone into your project, so today we will create elevator speeches so you can hit the high points of your project in 1-2 minutes.

No readings.

10am–Noon: Worst Presentation Ever! Or, How to Talk About Your Research

Many times you will only have a few minutes to discuss your project, which is why elevator speeches are important. However, if you’re presenting at a conference or other talk where you have an extended amount of time to discuss your research (like at the end of this summer!), you need to plan out a presentation. Today, we will discuss some best practices for creating a longer presentation, and practice giving a short talk.
