If you facilitate events for diverse audiences, you may encounter unexpected situations that are difficult to navigate at the moment. Effective facilitation centers on what participants are doing and experiencing, setting the tone of the event, and tending to the group dynamics in the room. Inclusive facilitation is a leadership skill that requires self-awareness, observational skills, agility, and intention. Join this session to sharpen your leadership facilitation skill set in preparation for your next event. This workshop is intended for participants who have some prior facilitation experience. The workshop will be conducted in English by Kristin Macapagal, Program Director for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

This interactive workshop is intended for those starting or considering a systematic review-like project. I will provide a quick overview of the systematic review process. The focus will be on the most common traps you may encounter and ways to avoid them. The interactive presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. For example, you may want to ask: "What are the types of reviews and what are they good for?", "What is a great topic for a systematic-like review?", "How long will it take?" etc.

My research group has consistently published ~20 papers per year for 15 years, and most of these papers were published in the top 25% of journals (CiteScores) with an average citation of > 100. How did we manage to do this? There are several reasons. In this interactive talk session, I will share one core secret: how to write a lot and well. If you can do it, you are invincible in academia or elsewhere. But how do you do this? You should consider writing a review to transform you into an amazing writer.

Are you interested in making your presentations more memorable? Would you like to participate in a global event and give a speech on the big stage?

The Falling Walls Lab events and similar 3min pitch competitions give young researchers the chance to impress the world with their work.

 

In this briefing session Moe Atwa (recent OIST Graduate; Falling Walls Lab Sendai 2023 winner and global finalist) and Jonas Fischer (Academic Coordinator for Visiting Programs; Falling Walls 2020 Top 10 Winner) will talk about their experiences at the Falling Walls Lab Sendai and the global finals in Berlin. In addition, Izabela Porebska and Theodoros Bouloumis of OIST’s Orators Club will share their experiences from Falling Walls, “3 Minute Thesis”, and similar events.

The main part of the session will be on general methods and tips to make your presentations more engaging.

 

Finally, we will explain how to apply for the Falling Walls Lab Tokyo 2023 on July 25th, which will be co-hosted by OIST, and the planned practice sessions in June and July.
However, there is no need to apply for the actual Falling Walls Lab in order to join this briefing session. Feel free to join if you are interested in the topic in general, or thinking about joining the Falling Walls Lab competition or a similar event in the future. Open to all students, postdocs, and employees at OIST.
