Professional and Global Educators’ Community (PAGE) organized “Workshop on English for Academics: Lectures and Presentations Essentials” in collaboration with the British Council. It was held at Sanjo Conference Hall, Hongo Campus. A total of 12 participants consisted of graduate students and faculty members at the University of Tokyo. They came from diverse academic fields such as biology, economics, and German literature.
We invited an instructor from the British Council to learn about the logical structuring of lectures and presentations in English, useful English phrases for introduction/main issue/conclusion, the effective use of visuals, and how to use body language. With the use of a workbook and through discussions in English, participants were actively engaged in learning.
Here are some of the feedback we received from the participants after the workshop:
“Frequent practice helped me learn the contents easily.”
“Each lecture was followed by a practice session, which made it easier for me to absorb what I learned.”
“Frequent group work with the active use of English was a good learning environment for me.”
PAGE will continue to hold workshops focusing on the improvement of academic communication skills in English. We sincerely look forward to your participation.
