LATINA UGANDA – Day Five – Friday 21st June 2013
In the land of discovery, we are yet to experience Pecha Kucha, Oral Presentation Skills and create our personal site- Google sites. Communication is a broad subject however; today we shall focus on Scholarly communication skills given our Academic background.
Gone are the days when scholars would present long and boring presentations. Pecha Kucha solves all those challenges of time management since presenters are usually allocated 20 minutes to disseminate their research findings. Pictures, diagrams and tables can easily drive your point home without lengthy explanations.
When donors or institutions fund activities they expect return on investment that is why we introduce participants to Social Entrepreneurship. There are many free online resources and LATINA emphasizes use of free web based tools so that participants are able to some up with innovations which can be implemented in their organisations. At individual level, we shall see how participants can use these tools for commercial purposes. After all who wouldn’t want to use his/her digital skills to do business?
Let us see what our participants experience during this session!
