Oral Communication Skills

A key skill for any scientist is communicating ideas orally to your mentors and peers. Throughout your career you will be faced with the challenge of speaking in front of groups small and large – to explain a paper in journal clubs, to present a poster, to give a talk at conferences, and so on.

These resources are designed to help you master the craft of giving oral presentations in various settings. The links below lead to PowerPoint or video files used for our workshops for first year CLIMB students when we focus on oral communication skills.
