Though there are similarities between teaching and presenting at a conference, there are also some key differences. There is a feeling that teachers must be good at giving talks because they spend so much of their time in front of an audience, but in fact the two activities require some different skills and strategies. One of the important distinctions is that teachers are almost always in front of their own students, who they get to know very well. Speaking at a conference means speaking for a relatively short time in front of an audience of unknown people.
This course is the first of two courses on giving conference presentations. It will help you understand the different types of presentations, the advantages of giving a conference presentation, help you learn how to start with a presentation, and how to choose a topic.
