Effective Scientific Presentations - booked up

Einreichungs-/Anmeldefrist 23.06.2017

Oral presentations are an essential part of communicating research results to a scientific audience and represent an important aspect of being a professional researcher. The overall aim of this training is to present strategies and techniques for giving a successful talk at an international scientific conference.

In particular you will learn:

  1. how to prepare and structure an oral presentation
  2. how to define presentation aims
  3. how to make yourself understood
  4. how to use presentation tools and media effectively
  5. how to prepare for and respond on questions from the audience

The training consists of theoretical inputs, exercises, best-practice examples, feedback and discussions. The focus, however, will be on practical exercises. With the help of video-training, you will get the chance to improve content, structure, speech and body-language.

After the training, you know how to give convincing presentations at an academic meeting/conference. You are prepared to set up and give your own presentation, be a more confident speaker, and know how to reduce stage-fright. Ideally, you attend this training while preparing for an upcoming scientific meeting/conference that you will attend.
