Understanding Technical Talks in the Scientific and Technological Environment
Elena Montiel (coord.)
ETSIInf – UPM
In this module we will analise the main features of academic and profesional oral presentations in scientific and technical settings. Specifically, we will deal with:
- audience and purpose of an oral presentation
- main parts in a presentation (motivation, body, conclusions)
- other features: visuals, body language, voice power and Q&A
Students will be asked to participate in class by improvising some parts or their presentations, and to record a complete presentation of about 5 to 10 minutes as final assignment.
