Presenting Online

Effective online communication and presentation skills have become key elements of a successful academic career. Learning useful techniques (incl. technical setup & features, body language, visual aid design, question handling, etc.) and practicing them with trainer and peer feedback will enhance your skill set, reduce nervousness and make you feel more secure about your interaction with and impact on an online audience.

This two-day online workshop combines relevant input with a considerable amount of practice to furnish you with what you need to deliver professional online presentations. Feedback and video will provide multiple perspectives on your current presentation behavior and facilitate continuing the learning and development process also after the workshop.

For the start of the workshop, please prepare a short 2- to 3-minute online presentation of yourself – with or without visual aids, as you wish – as your introduction to the group.

 Please note:

Participation is subject to the successfully passed public presentation of your dissertation project.
