making science communication a conversation

Presentation Best Practices from the Union of Concerned Scientists

You know the drill. You go to a scientific conference to learn about the work your peers and colleagues are doing. But the presentations have slides filled top to bottom with text, there are graphs with text and numbers too tiny to read, and the presenter keeps staring down at her notes, never making eye contact. Just because we've all had this experience doesn't mean this is the only way.

Presentations can be engaging and scientifically accurate—and our next webinar will walk you through how.
