Presentation Boot Camp!
Presentation Boot Camp was a two-day intensive workshop for students presenting at the upcoming symposium. It is designed to prepare students to present research concepts and findings more effectively to both technical audiences and the genera; public. Topics included: knowing and identifying the needs of the audience, highlighting big ideas and take-home messages, decoding complex concepts with diagrams, and displaying data in meaningful ways. FAU had 13 students graduate from this boot camp this past weekend and will never look at presentations the same way!
