Academic presentations: Questions, challenges and worries about presenting your work to academic colleagues

In a workshop between Edge Hill and St.Martin’s College, teacher educators discussed how to present their work to academic colleagues. The workshop was entitled ‘Going Public!’ and was intended to give an opportunity for colleagues to consider the following; what are the questions you have about ‘Going Public!’, what are the challenges and what are the worries.

The suggested replies were generated by the group and are offered here as starting points for colleagues to consider their own wish to ‘Go Public!’ They are not definitive answers, just suggestions to help you on your way.

With thanks to members of staff from Edge Hill and St. Martin’s College.
