Seminars objectives:
A good presentation begins with good preparation. Participants work on exercises that help them understand the best techniques in developing the right presentation by answering questions like: Who will be present? Where will I give my talk? How can I most effectively present my research material? What determines success?
Beyond that, the doctoral candidates learn how body language can help them and strengthen their presentations, both in stressing their arguments and in authentically revealing their personalities.
In the two days of seminar work, they develop a solid foundation of effective strategies so that they can systematically prepare sound talks, improve their presentation skills, and increase their own self-perception. The participants will recognize their strengths and know how they can correct and improve critical parts of their presentations.

lesson content:

  • Giving numerous talks, including one over their current research
  • Taking questions, also difficult ones, in the follow-up discussion
  • Using body language influentially and with success
