Pre-conference Events

To help you prepare for the conference, the GPA team is facilitating a series of “pair and share” workshops in which we’ll discuss best practice for writing abstracts and giving the actual presentation itself. No RSVP necessary.

February 11th: Writing Compelling Abstracts

10:30-12:00 | MPR 2012 (PCOH)

Plenty of great presentations never find their audience because of poorly written abstracts. Join us for this workshop in which we discuss exactly what makes a great abstract! We’ll have expert advice from Professor Anthony Paré, and opportunities to pair up and get feedback on your abstract prior to submission!

April 15th:  How to Engage Your Audience

10:00-12:00 | PCOH Research Commons

Presentation skills are killer skills. In this workshop, we’ll pool our knowledge of what makes a great presentation and come up with a set of guidelines for engaging (and hopefully inspiring!) our potential audience. There will be time for some practice and plenty of opportunities to share peer feedback.
