(entrance via 26 Russell Square)
In this Birkbeck Institute for Social Research Developing Your Research Career workshop, Dr Rosie Cox
<http://www.bbk.ac.uk/geds/our-staff/full-time-academic-staff/cox> will discuss how to use conference attendance and presentation successfully. With a proliferation of academic and non-academic conferences organised it can be difficult to select which to attend and to know who your audience might be when you get there. Conferences can be time consuming and expensive to attend so it’s important that a conference presentation gives you more than just a line on your CV. This session will look at how conferences can be used to develop your ideas and build networks as well as to share your research. It will discuss the pros and cons of different presentation formats and what makes for a good presentation but will not be a hands-on guide to using presentation software.
