Williams, Julia2Dr. Julia Williams will be giving a webinar on November 19th, 2015, 2:00-3:00pm EDT on Preparing your Research for Presentation. Whether you are student working toward a degree or a professional engineer conducting research, you will always need to take the written version of your work from its form in a lab notebook, a report, or a paper and translate it into a presentation or poster.

But what are the key strategies for bringing your work from the “page” to the “stage”? This IEEE USA webinar will offer a clear process for making this transition successfully. Dr. Julia Williams is an experienced teacher and coach of engineering students and professionals, and she will provide concrete strategies for making the most effective use of presentations.
