This module helps students to improve their personal online presentation skills. This session is a combination of a lecture followed by a practical part with exercises, which turn the acquired knowledge into personal experience. Topics are, among others: how to structure a presentation so that the audience can it follow easily, designing slides, making the best possible use of visual aids and technical equipment, dealing with interruptions, handling questions, keeping an eye on the time and the best way of finishing in a hurry, common mistakes, what to do when nervous, how to give proper feedback, etc. Furthermore, non-native speakers of English are given tips on spoken language and a number of phrases they can use e.g. for transition. Exercises deal with posture, breathing, voice and body language. The most important part, though, are the individual presentations given by the students. The students are given individual feedback. Every student prepares a 3-min talk.

This course is already fully booked.
