Presentation Training for Virtual Conferences – Engaging the Listener in Your Talk

Course Type: Online-Workshop
Target Group: Doctoral researchers and Postdoctoral researchers
The interactive two-day workshop affords participants the opportunity to enhance their video presentation skills. Constructive feedback from the trainer and group members as well as a review of their recording give the speaker a healthy amount of input while perfecting their online presentation skills.
Participants will be required to prepare a 3 to 5 minute overview of their work to an international audience of scientists with mixed levels of expertise in a virtual meeting scenario.
Participants will meet in online plenary sessions in the morning sessions for modules of trainer input, discussion and practice on both days of the training. Participants are then clustered in working groups in the afternoon sessions to
practice and train their short presentations. Constructive feedback from the trainer and the other participants will provide you with professional input and offer benchmarks to assess the effect of your presentations.
