Communicating your expertise clearly to an audience is a critical skill for trainees to develop. In some cases, you may only get five minutes to engage someone about your work or alternatively you may need to communicate your accomplishments and vision in a longer format. One aspect of the job market that is often shrouded in mystery for trainees is the chalk talk. This type of communication involves presenting your research vision and strategies to a defined audience. This seminar aims to introduce strategies to help you improve your short format pitches and discuss in more detail chalk talk expectations and approaches.
