1 Queensland University of Technology CRICOS No J Successfully Speaking workshop Professor Kunle Oloyede, PhD., DIC Director Higher Degrees Research School of Chemistry Physics and Mechanical Engineering

2 CRICOS No J a university for the world real R To speak successfully Plan Practise Provide 3-Ps

3 CRICOS No J a university for the world real R Planning = Questions and Analysis What do I want to say? Content Analysis What benefits to audience? Who is my Audience? Purpose - Why? Should they listen to me? Structure of slides/talk

4 CRICOS No J a university for the world real R Why do you want to speak? To let people know about your thinking and approach to an important problem To engage with people and get feedback To Publish and enhance you career To learn how to present for your next destination, e.g., a job To impart knowledge To act as change agent (for a cause)

5 CRICOS No J a university for the world real R Actions to take for conferences Effective preparation and iterations Controlled Breathing especially before you get on stage First few sentences or moments might be a problem – Don’t worry it happens to all Keep telling yourself that you have prepared well Look at the audience and shift your eyes across the room

6 CRICOS No J a university for the world real R Actions to take for journal publication What is the philosophical argument? What is my hypothesis – does it suit the forum? What knowledge does it create? Who might review your paper/confirmation document? Does your abstract tell it all? What are my results saying to the experts and non-experts in the field – Have I reported my findings effectively? – ask a colleague

7 CRICOS No J a university for the world real R Paper Structure Abstract must tell it all Each paragraph must begin a new component and end with a closure statement Each paragraph must lead to the next for continuity Results are not the same as discussion – one is your finding the other is what you make of it philosophically!

8 CRICOS No J a university for the world real R Most important Know your subject Know your audience Know your publisher/journal/conference Arrange so that the most important issues are addressed as soon as possible Practise, do a lot of iterations Be prepared for hard work

9 CRICOS No J a university for the world real R Content Usually with slides Time usually between 10 and 40 minutes For 10 minutes – approximately 6-8 slides Crucial components like results first before anything else

10 Queensland University of Technology CRICOS No J A brief example! I want to convince a group of students to consider enrolling for research in the STEM faculty

11 Queensland University of Technology CRICOS No J Why research in Science Technology Engineering Mathematics? Engage in creative endeavours that bring benefit to society via innovations Contribute to knowledge that drives development Contribute to economic growth make people’s lives better

12 Queensland University of Technology CRICOS No J How do we do we achieve this? Create new knowledge Find new ways of using existing knowledge Selected areas With students (YOU) as partners/collaborators STEM

13 Queensland University of Technology CRICOS No J Excellence in Research for Australia QUT ranked 2 nd of the non-Go8 universities (10 th overall or in the 1 st top quartile of Australian universities) Several disciplines rated between 3 and 5 With you QUT aims to break into a position that cuts into the top 8 currently occupied by the Go8

14 Queensland University of Technology CRICOS No J Distributed Precincts Research Facilities Significant investment and still growing Buildings with purpose MERF at Prince Charles Hospital ARCAA at Brisbane Airport Microgravity Drop Tower Biodiesel Engine Research Facility Distributed Generation Test Facility Simulation and Modelling Facility
