Nailing Professional Presentations: Posters, PowerPoint, & Poise

In this forum, Professor Coggins will run through the basics of conference presentations. How are posters, panels, and roundtables different? What do chairs and discussants do? How on earth do I translate a 35-page paper into a 12-minute presentation? What makes for a good slide? How do I approach the audience?

Professional Skills Forums are open to all current department graduate students.
