COURSE OUTLINE A two-hour 1:1 coaching session is offered in preparation for a scientific conference presentation. During this individual coaching via Zoom the participants give their prepared talk. Subsequently, the participants receive detailed feedback on the presentation (structure, slide design, presentation style, rhetorical and didactic aspects, etc.). Furthermore, ideas and tips for optimizing the presentation are discussed and practiced. The coaching also offers the opportunity to address and discuss individual questions regarding scientific presentations.
Ideally, the participants should send their PPT slides for the presentation to the consultant at least one day before the individual appointment.
To support the participants in preparing their talks, they will receive a short handout by August 1, 2020 at the latest with various tips and some advice on the topic of scientific presentations.
TARGET AUDIENCEPhD candidates and everyone who wants to practice their presentation skills, especially for the conference “Graubünden forscht”.
