Engage, Enlighten, Entertain – How to Speak to Non-Scientists & Get Better at It
When: Thu, 11.11.2021 10:30 AM until Thu, 25.11.2021 12:00 PM
The presentation training will give you key guidelines and practical tips on how to become better at presenting your research. The focus will be on presenting to a non-peer audience.
This course is an online course. In order to make this a feature instead of a bug, the course is broken down into several live sessions. The time in between we will use for exercises and short peer reviews which are self-scheduled. In addition, you will get short individual feedback sessions which we will schedule once the course has started. Despite the remote setup, the workshop will take a very practical approach.
