This seminar develops vital presentation skills for confident scientific paper and poster presentations. You will learn how to clarify your intentions, explore the audience‘s needs and create a stringent outline. We will focus on tools for designing clear, convincing and engaging content. The course will guide you in creating dynamic narrative and, if necessary, in enhancing the clarity of your visual support. It also includes the opportunity to observe and develop your performance techniques involving body language, voice and stage presence: You will create a short presentation of your choice (about 5 min.). A video recording of your presentation will provide you with direct feedback about your performance.
Intended Learning Outcomes

- You know how to apply plotting tools to organize a persuasive outline and goal-oriented content (trainer input, mind-map, five-sentence-method).
- You are able to mould your facts into an engaging and effective narrative using storytelling elements (examples, storytelling).
- You are familiar with steps for clarifying your visuals and handling questions well (guidelines, exercise to apply a model).
- You are able to refine your awareness of stage presence and body language with the help of a video recording (trainer input, exercise, personal video analysis with feedback) and know techniques to find calm and confidence (exercises).
