Oral Academic Presentations in Practice


This Short Course's general goals are:getting researchers and teachers acquainted with good oral communication practical concepts and fostering the presentation of academic communications by the researchers and teachers of the University of Porto.

Presenting academic communications is part of the professional life of researchers and teachers and is, or should be, a priority for all those who wish to keep updated with their area of knowledge.

Oral communication - be it through paper presentations at key-points of ongoing research, or a final dissertation - is the quickest way that researchers and teachers have at their disposal for sharing their perspetives on the issues, and getting feedback from their peers.

At this Short Couse we will encourage researchers and teachers to practice their oral presentation of academic communications skills. It is, therefore, an opportunity for this public to exercise their ability to pass on their message in a clear, succint way and with impact on their audiences. This can furthermore contribute for the exchange and production of knowledge by the University of Porto.
