As something new, this year’s annual meeting is introducing a feedback concept benefitting each presenter.
Presenting information in a clear and effective manor is a key skill to get your message across. However, as researchers, we must often figure out how to deliver a good presentation on our own.
As presenting is vital to spread your research, this year’s SSRCTS is offering you the opportunity to improve your presentation technique by giving you constructive feedback.
Video and written feedback on your presentation
The feedback will be given to you through both an evaluation form and a video recording of your presentation.
The evaluation form will be filled out by some of your peers during your presentation and will highlight both strengths and weaknesses. You can see the evaluation form here: Presentation evaluation form for individual feedback.
The video of you presenting is for your own personal use and may be used as a guide towards future improvement, as you are your own worst critic. You will receive your evaluation form after your presentation session has ended. The video of you presenting can be transferred to your own personal USB key or downloaded through a private link via wetransfer.com. At the end of the annual meeting, all recorded videos on local SSRCTS storages will be deleted.
The feedback is independent of the awards at the meeting and it will not affect the award committee’s decisions. It is fully up to you to decide whether you want feedback or not. We are looking forward to seeing you at the 29th annual meeting in SSRCTS.
