Presenting in English - with Elisabeth Sommerhoff (Part 1)
As a doctoral student you are supposed to give presentations at conferences or in a seminar at your University. Most of these presentations will be held in English as that is the common language in an international context.
It is not an easy task to give a presentation in your native language let alone in a foreign language and environment. This workshop is designed to help you to master this task.
We will concentrate on:
- how to prepare a presentation for your audience,
- how to prepare yourself for presenting,
- and how to improve your presentation skills in English.
There will be the chance of video-feedback for those who wish.
Please bring a short presentation (approximately 5min) to work on during the workshop. It can be part of a longer presentation you are planning to give, or it can be a short overview on one aspect of your doctoral thesis.
You are welcome to use PowerPoint or any other visual support for your presentation.
Our Online-Workshop will be held on the Platform “Zoom” and you will get a link via e-mail 15 min ahead of the workshop to join.
