NERCOMP Workshop: Talking Tech on the Spot

When: Monday, December 8, 2014, 9:00am-3:00pm
Where: University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA

The Northeast Regional Computing Program (NERCOMP) will be holding a workshop on "Talking Tech on the Spot," to prepare participants to respond in a clearly, concise manner when they are put on the spot. In the morning, a professional trainer will give advice on how to craft a clear, concise response, and reduce anxiety in these situations. The afternoon will be developed to practice. Each participant will be videotaped responding to a sample question, and have the opportunity to get feedback from other participants.
