FASS519 Presenting Conference Papers
This course will be of particular interest to those who are about to present a conference paper for the first time. These two half-day sessions will take you through the cycle of writing conference papers, their presentation and possible publication. Both sessions include active participation in small groups. For the first session, it would be useful if students could bring along examples of specific conferences they are planning to attend and 'Calls for Papers' since one of the ('homework') exercises will be to write a conference abstract. (If you do not have any conference appearances yet planned, please identify an upcoming conference in your field and imagine that you are presenting at it).
In the second session, those students who wish to do so will have the opportunity to present a short (10 minute) paper (extracted from a forthcoming conference presentation) in order that the group as a whole may reflect upon the different presentational options available. Although this may sound daunting, the discussion is invariably constructive for both the presenter and the other members of the group. The presentations will be filmed by a colleague from LUTV and students can sign up for a (personal) DVD if they so wish.
NB Because these sessions are workshop-based and involve presentations it will be necessary to limit attendance to 25.
Some materials / handouts will be made available on the VLE in advance of the courses; instructions on how to access them will be mailed to participants a week or two before the course is due to run.
