Successful communication in oral presentations is essential in academia. Talks, panel discussions, and poster presentations shape how colleagues and the public perceive you and your research. How you present your research and yourself can ‘make or break’ the success of a grant application, a job opportunity, or a collaboration down the line.
In this seminar, we teach and help you practice authentic presentation techniques that work in an academic context. In addition to the 1.5-day workshop, an individual session is offered in which each participant presents his/her talk in preparation for the conference "Graubünden forscht" and receives detailed feedback from the trainer.
