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?
Body language is an aspect that is covered in any presentation workshop but under these special circumstances, we will cover effectively and efficiently using the online platform Zoom to give top-notch presentations. Your voices will play a particularly critical role here. Hence, in advance you should prepare a presentation of a maximum of 5 slides (excluding the title slide) about your current research for a non-expert scientific audience. (Slide analysis will be in the first week).
In the seminar you will develop a solid foundation of effective strategies so that you can systematically prepare sound talks, improve your presentation skills, and increase your own self-perception. You will recognize your strengths and know how you can correct and improve critical parts of your presentations.

  • 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
  • Becoming acquainted and using online platforms effectively

Credits: 0 Credits (1 Credit, if you also take part in "Networking at Conferences")
Demands: Attendance on both days; ready to speak on short notice
