Communication Skills Workshop for researchers

Such skills will be helpful when lobbying for research funds, in job interviews, in joint research discussions, and in outreach to the general public.

Intended for: faculty members, researchers, technical staff members, students

Content of the workshop

A lecturer from the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation will give a lecture after which participants will practice making presentations in groups. Participants will make 3-minute presentations, 15-minute presentations, and present comments on others' performances.

This workshop will be conducted in Japanese. A workshop on making presentations in English has been scheduled as part of the international symposium TCUID 2013 on Monday, November 18. After improving your communication skills in this workshop for presentations in Japanese, why not try doing the same for presentations in English? (The TCUID workshop has no restrictions as to who may join it.)
