This two-day webinar provides you with training and practice in giving professional lectures and presentations in English. By the end of the course, you will know how to give a memorable lecture with a clear message. You will additionally be given the linguistic tools to signal structure, build rapport with the audience, handle difficult questions and close classroom presentations confidently. We will also discuss how to adapt your presentations to international audiences of mixed English ability, and in the later sections of the course you will be given the opportunity to practise your English lecturing skills and to receive individualized feedback. As the webinar aims to be as practical as possible, we will hold short presentations after lunch on day two to give you all the chance to move from the theory to the practice and to receive feedback on your skills. For this reason, all participants are asked to prepare a 6-8 minute presentation in advance of the webinar on a topic that they would typically teach. Some more information will be sent on this a week or two before the webinar begins, and we will set aside time during the webinar to incorporate new techniques into the presentation.
