Description

This week-long workshop is for late-stage graduate students and early-stage postdocs in number theory to learn and develop strategies for giving clear, motivated, and informative talks. While some of the workshop will focus on basic skills like good boardwork and eye contact, the majority of the workshop will be focused on how to effectively convey mathematical ideas to people outside of one's particular specialty in number theory. There will be multiple small breakout sessions where faculty mentors (including the organizers) will give feedback on talks and discuss concrete strategies for preparing and giving talks.
