Essence of Scientific Presentation -- tips from the NIG Method
Professor Yasushi Hiromi
Director / Senior Research Administrator
Office for Research Development, National Institute of Genetics (NIG)
Scientific presentation (research presentation) is not an oral version of your research paper. Presentation transmits not only research accomplishments but also valuable information about the presenters themselves: the breadth of their research interests, logical and critical thinking skills, future directions, and personality. To meet these hidden needs of scientific presentation, National Institute of Genetics (NIG = Dept. Genetics, SOKENDAI) have developed a methodology of scientific presentation, called "NIG Method". This methodology has been adopted as a curriculum for scientific presentation in many departments of SOKENDAI.
This workshop will introduce essential elements of this methodology.
Participants will also watch a video of model presentation and discuss how the presentation can be improved.
