Emailing Netiquette

All emails are not created equal. An email to a job interviewer or faculty member should be written in a different style and tone than one to a friend. How can you be polite over email? You want to get it right the first time! This workshop will teach you about professional and academic emails and appropriate "net etiquette."

PowerPoint Like a Pro

Slides and data visualizations can make or break your presentation. This workshop is meant to teach design principles and introduce online tools for non-designers. Before and after examples will be used to showcase how to use color schemes and white space, to contrast elements, and to communicate main ideas effectively. During the workshop, you will practice redesigning slides and leave with a list of tools you can start using today in your own presentations.

Going from Paper to Presentation

You’ve finished your research paper: great! Now you’ve got to present your paper in class: less great… How you present information is not the same way you should write it in terms of pacing, organization, and hooks for the audience. Presenting doesn't need to be stressful: This workshop will walk you through the process of making an effective presentation based off a paper you've written. You will learn how to create both a 5-minute presentation and a 15-minute presentation.
