PMaking the Most of Your Oral Presentations
January 28, 2016 from 3:00 to 5:00 PM
Dr. Jean Luc Doumont
Strong presentation skills are a key to success for engineers, scientists, and others, yetmany speakers are at a loss to tackle the task. Systematic as they otherwise can be in their work, they go at it intuitively or haphazardly, with much good will but seldom good results. In this talk, Dr Doumont proposes a systematic way to prepare and deliver an oral presentation: he covers structure, slides, and delivery, as well as stage fright.

Distilling Your Message to Nonscientists
April 5, 2016 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Rockefeller University
More details to come!

Past Events

Fraud in the Lab:  The Personal Side
Laurel E. Southard
Director of Undergraduate Research
Cornell University

In this session we will explore a historic case of fraud from the viewpoint of the people who were involved.  Science and the courts make policies and laws to stop fraud, but each individual brings their own sense of ethics to the dynamic.
