Presentation Performance

This one-semester course will enable the participants to develop and hone their presenting skills. The course addresses the fear of public performance, allowing participants to discover both the strong and weak points of their oral English skills. Even though the course is primarily designed for researchers and scientists who need to present at international conferences, professionals from all walks of life may profit from attending. The course focuses on three pillars of high-quality presentations: content and how it is structured; graphic design; and delivery. We will look at how presenters interact with the audience and how they can overcome stage fright and stress. Participants will also master basic story-telling principles and learn how to best utilize their voice. Particular emphasis is given to effective language usage, especially in terms of correct pronunciation and stylistic and academic English proficiency. The course alternates independent work online in LMS Moodle with meetings over Zoom. From the start, students will be encouraged to put their newly gained theoretical knowledge into practice; they will receive regular in-depth, constructive feedback from both the instructor and their colleagues. Upon completing the course, students will be able to develop and effectively deliver a (scientific) presentation in English and will improve their general communication skills.
