Academic Presenting at Seminars and Conferences: Delivering Effective and Powerful Talks in English

The purpose of this workshop is to support you in developing your academic presentation skills in English while, at the same time, making you more confident about applying them in practice – e.g., at conferences or in other academic environments. For that, we will, on the one hand, discuss a series of important techniques to plan and deliver effective and forceful presentations (particularly in English) and will, on the other hand, consider how to avoid typical errors, how to handle difficult situations while presenting, and how to answer questions properly.

In order to make this workshop as useful for you as possible and to address your personal presentation style, you will be given the opportunity to give a short presentation (maximum 10 minutes) after the course (at a date to be arranged) and to receive peer and expert feedback on it. This presentation is voluntary, and the feedback will focus on how to reach a maximum communicative effect – e.g. through the adequate use of English, stylistic and rhetorical devices, your personal presence, structural organization, the use of voice, and the supportive integration of visual aids (such as PowerPoint). In the end, we will thus have developed a comprehensive checklist of criteria for presenting well in English.

The workshop is open to anyone interested in developing their presentation skills
