Using a microphone is a skill that is often required of researchers at conferences or seminars, yet it is not usually taught… until now! This workshop is open to researchers at all levels. It has been designed for researchers who have very little or no experience in using microphones or researchers who would like to develop their confidence in using microphones for presentation purposes.
Using a microphone effectively can make all the difference for the impact of your presentation. Despite your best efforts with your slides and speech, improper use of the microphone or a lack of confidence when handling the microphone can negatively affect your audience’s understanding of your presentation, or even their perception of you as a speaker.
This workshop allows participants the opportunity to familiarise themselves with a range of different microphones and provide general advice on microphone use. The workshop also examines the importance of speech, i.e. using your voice effectively when using a microphone.
During the workshop participants will:
• Become familiar with different types of microphone
• Be able to demonstrate confidence when using a microphone
Due to the nature of this workshop, please notify us, at the point of registration, whether you have any vocal problems, hearing loss, speech impediments, or if English is your second language. This will enable us to prepare to ensure you get the most out of the workshop.
