Presenting one’s own research projects or results in person and fielding critical questions that are asked by expert appraisers is
frequently necessary in the course of the evaluation of applications for third-party funding or projects. This workshop offers an
opportunity for you to intensively prepare for presentations of project applications or research results in connection with evaluation
procedures with the aid of video support and to practise your own argumentation skills. You will get differentiated feedback that takes
the entire bandwidth of aspects that are relevant for presentations into consideration (structuring, delivery technique, body language,
use of media). Moreover, you will learn techniques and strategies that will enable you to respond to critical questions in an eminently
competent and convincing manner.
Intended Learning Outcomes
- You will know how to gear your lectures and presentations to various different situations in a systematic and goal-oriented fashion (trainer input).
- You will be aware of the strengths of your presentation as well as concrete options for improving it (feedback, communication with peers).
- You will be more assured when dealing with critical questions and will be familiar with discussion techniques that will enable you to take part in the discussion on an equal footing (trainer input, practice, peer feedback).
Two weeks before the workshop begins, you will receive a brief questionnaire about your expectations so that the workshop can be
tailored to your needs as specifically as possible. Please prepare a short ten-minute presentation (project application or research
results) and bring it with you on the day of the course.
Proficiency in English at the B2 level of competency is required.
