There are many ways in which scientists communicate their work, publications, poster or oral presentations or via individual conversations. In terms of leaving a deep impression about your work and yourself, oral presentations are a very powerful way. However, many scientists are scared of the prospect to stand in front of a large and potentially critical audience to present their work. They rush through the presentations, clinging onto overloaded slides and miss a crucial chance to show themselves in a positive light.
In this interactive workshop, we´ll cover the following topics:
– Preparation: target your audience
– Stage fright: how you can enjoy the adrenaline rush
– Body language: how you can make a good first impression
– Personality types: can you score well as an introvert? How authentic can/shall you be?
– Slide design
– Pace, voice, interaction
– Craft a round “story”
– From start to finish. “Clamp” your presentation
– Q&A sessions: and you just thought it´s over already…
This is a highly interactive workshop with the possibility for video feedback. The participants can get the chance to work on short pitch-presentations and/ or their own slide presentations about their own research.
This course can be combined with the course “Convincing and debating” and “Poster presentation”
