Date: Wednesday, July 4, 2018 and Thursday, July 5, 2018; 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Registration until: June 19, 2018

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?
Beyond that, the doctoral candidates learn how body language can help them and strengthen their presentations, both in stressing their  arguments and in authentically revealing their personalities.

Day one will include the following:

• Finding out about the situation
• Body language
• Preparation of a talk about your current research
• Two short talks

Day two will focus on:

• Understanding interests of an audience
• Creating better slides
• Master discussions
• A 5-7 minute talk about your current research

In the two days of seminar work, they develop a solid foundation of  effective strategies so that they can systematically prepare sound  talks, improve their presentation skills, and increase their own self-perception. The participants will recognize their strengths and know how they can correct and improve critical parts of their presentations.
