Scientific Presentation

Target group: 
PhD students

This workshop aims to equip you with the tools to present your scientific goals structured and in a confident way.

Your research results can only become widespread and known to others if you can communicate your findings effectively. While some find it easier than others communicating your research results and project plans effectively and confidently is a skill every researcher should hone regularly.

Knowing some fundamental strategies for communication and presentation will allow you to illustrate complex ideas in a context relevant way, to convince others, to win supporters and thus reach your communication goals.

In this workshop you will develop your personal presentation strategies. Through exercises and role-plays you get an opportunity to familiarise yourself with established presentation techniques. We will look at how to prepare for your presentation and set the context and then share tips and tricks but also discuss how to deal with difficult questions.

You will then get the chance to practice the newly learned techniques and give a short presentation of your PhD topic and get individual feedback on the structure and delivery.

This workshop helps prepare you for the presentation in your first TAC meeting.
