Presentation skills for natural scientists
Tutor: Dr. Ben Brüggemann (Major Physics)
Room: 0.01, Time: 09:00-17:00
The participants develop their presentation skills towards more convincing scientific talks and more effective poster presentations. Through video feedback, areas of potential for improvement are identified. New skills are trained in a supporting environment.
Preparation of the talk/poster contents:
Preparing the slides/poster:
Methods: Presentation by the trainer, practical exercises. Role play to train the interaction with the audience. A short talk by every participant is recorded and played back during the training. Group and trainer feedback and the presenters own impressions help to improve his/her presentation skills.
Format: 2 training days (8h). Max. 12 participants.
Trainer: Dr. Ben Brüggemann works as coach and trainer for natural scientists. He obtained his Ph.D. in physics (theory of ultrafast spectroscopy) at Humboldt-University Berlin, and worked for five years as PostDoc in Lund (Sweden) and Berlin. He has co-authored 22 peer-reviewed publications, and participated in numerous international conferences with talks and posters.
