Presenting for success - Designing and delivering scientific talks

The workshop starts with a brief recap of some principles that all presenters need to bear in mind for addressing any audience. Drawing on these, we will then dig into the practical consequences for designing a presentation and structuring its information content for maximum effect. Even more practically (!) we will consider things such as where to stand, how to speak and move, and the physical relationship between presenter and audience. Interspersed throughout the workshop we will have the pleasure of being the audience for presentations made by you, the participants. Please, therefore, make a brief presentation of your work in powerpoint or similar, and be prepared to present it at the workshop without exceeding 5 minutes.

Scientific presentations – Concise content, storytelling & slide decks

Within this 1,5 day-workshop, participants will learn to deliver high quality scientific talks with ease. Key elements are (1) to learn how to simplify complex content without losing precision, (2) to incorporate storytelling elements to communicate complex ideas effectively and (3) to create visually appealing slide decks that enhance comprehension. To this end, the training combines short, digestible learning snippets with interactive practice sessions, ensuring that participants have ample opportunity to apply their newly acquired knowledge in a supportive environment providing valuable feedback.

Timeline: day 1: 8:30 - 17:30 with 1 hour lunch break, day 2: 9:00 - 14:00

Think before you write - Properly representing your research in the online age and understanding publishing

The workshop starts with insights into the cognitive psychology of readers, from which we will draw very practical consequences for writing and structuring our manuscripts. There will be short exercises and longer assignments for participants throughout the workshop, and all participants should submit a title and abstract of their work before the course: these will be worked on during the workshop with input from the workshop coach.

Unconscious bias I

Navigating the academic journey with clarity & empathy: unconscious bias awareness for scientists

In this mandatory half-day workshop, we will uncover unconscious biases in our environment and in ourselves, understand the origins of these biases and recognize how they affect our day-to-day lives on all levels. We will experience a change of perspective and learn how to navigate stereotypes to shape an (academic) environment based on mutual respect and empathy in which everybody's ideas can be heard.
