Oral presentations form a major part of research communication. The chance to practise and receive feedback is central to improving performance. Participants will each present a 10 min PowerPoint presentation on their research project to an interdisciplinary audience and receive feedback. The feedback will focus on content and layout of slides, the overall flow and signposting of the presentation and the presenter’s communication skills. The presentation can be recorded as an option to generate a resource for further self-development.
