Produced by Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme, the resources in this section help students to develop their presentation skills.

Students consider that, in the scientific community, knowledge is presented in situations such as lectures and conferences by oral presentations and posters. The person conveying the message is responsible for ensuring that it is clearly understood by the audience.

This Skill Area introduces students to ways in which they can present their knowledge and make use of visual methods of communication.

There are trainer development materials associated with the delivery of learning activities in this skill area. They can be found at: LSS Skill Area 6 Training.
