Chairing Academic Panels and Meetings

One-day workshop offered by the Bonn Graduate Center on May 29, 2019, 9.00 a.m. till 5.00 p.m., Alte Sternwarte, Poppelsdorfer Allee 47, Room Pegasus (0.003).

Modul Kompetenzen

Meetings, workshops and panels make up a large portion of work life in and outside academia. This course sets out to equip participants with useful tools to efficiently chair and moderate such events. To this end, the course tackles three aspects: First, we will cover the ground rules of successful meetings, before focusing in more depth on the specific role and tasks of a moderator. In the second half of the course, we will work on effective solutions for typical problems in group meetings, such as ‘chatterboxes’, off-topic talk, aggression and blockings. The course employs a hands-on approach, and draws on real-life experiences made by its participants. 

Target Group

Doctoral and postdoctoral researchers who hold or plan on holding leadership positions that require effective moderation skills.
