ANC Workshop

The ANC Workshop is currently (December 2011) on Tuesdays at 11am, usually in IF 4.31/33, when we don't have an external speaker for the ANC/DTC seminar series.


The structure of the workshops has been the subject of some debate recently and we have decided to tweak the format very slightly. We plan to bring in the following changes. Each workshop will now feature three people, two speakers and a chair/host for the day. The host has the responsibility of introducing each speaker, giving them a time warning at 20 minutes and cutting the presentation at 25 minutes then hosting 5 minutes of questions. If someone wants to practice a specific time of talk (shorter or longer) for a specific external event then they should inform the host in advance. I addition, if the host could ask each speaker if they want to have a feedback session then they should announce that at the start of the talk and then chair it after both talks are complete. Feedback session could cover presentation style as well as scientific content. This is actually valuable experience for everyone involved. Keeping to time very accurately in presentations is an important skill to have at major meetings. Being confident when introducing a speaker, time keeping,hosting questions and the compulsory 'host' question at the end of the talk, is a very useful skill. Session hosts at workshops are a good way to raise your own profile so it is a very important skill. The feedback sessions are optional and it is up to speakers to decide if they would like people with comments to stay on at the end to discuss them.

Note. If you are not available for your allocated presentation then it is your responsibility to arrange a switch with someone.
