Public Speaking Workshop for Graduate Students

220 Stephens Hall Geballe Room — Townsend Center, Berkeley

Lura Dolas (Senior Continuing Lecturer Emerita and former head of the UC Berkeley Acting Program) conducts a two-session in-person workshop to help graduate students deliver job talks and professional presentations clearly, confidently, and persuasively. The workshops offer techniques for neutralizing stage fright, identifying naturally expressive behavior, achieving personal connection in virtual presentations, and replacing flat jargon with engaging language. Exercises to expand vocal range and improve eye contact and use of gesture will enhance both live and virtual audience rapport. These workshops provide a safe, constructive environment to promote individual participation. In the first meeting, participants are given a series of exercises to enhance presentation of self and material. In the second, participants may present a short sample of a job talk or professional presentation for individual coaching. Workshop dates: Monday, October 30, 2023 | 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Monday, November 6, 2023 | 9:30 am - 1:00 pm Eligibility: UC Berkeley PhD students who have advanced to candidacy and are entering the job market, broadly conceived. Admission is limited. Priority will be given to students in the arts and humanities and related social sciences. Make sure to complete the Graduate Student Public Speaking Workshop Application by October 6th.

UndocuGrads: Check-in Group Meetings

Join GradPros UndocuGrads check in group! This group serves as a dedicated and identity safe space where undocumented graduate students meet regularly during the semester with a group of other grad students. GradPro facilitators guide the check-ins, fostering an informal yet supportive community. Each member describes the progress they have made since the previous meet up, as well as any challenges they've encountered. The group then offers support and advice. Check-ins are coordinated by GradPro of the Graduate Division in partnership with OGD!
