Challenging doctoral students to devising and delivering a short presentation about their research and why it matters

Open to doctoral students who would like to learn how to engage older people with research. You’ll be given the challenge of devising and delivering a short (5 – 10 minute) presentation about your research, about why it matters and its (potential) impact, to a group of older people. Instead, you’ll need to choose an object either associated with, or that encapsulates, your research and present this as a ‘hook’ for your talk.

You’ll present your object and research to the Age UK B&NES Culture Club (comprised of ages 55 years and over) at St John’s Hospital Meeting Room. 

Once the Postgraduate Researchers have been recruited you will be expected to attend a practice session to take it in turns to share with each other the object chosen and to have a go at presenting to each other so you can iron out any problems. 

The closing date for applications is 21 February 2020.

There are more details on how to apply at at the SU Volunteering opportunity
