Presenting Research Results

Ute Leidig, Heidelberg University


An important part in research is presenting your results. This course will help you to prepare for the presentation of your research in seminars, at conferences or in your disputation. In the course we will work on the following topics:

  • How do I structure my talk to make it more effective?
  • How do I use media efficiently?
  • What do I have to bear in mind to address my audience most effectively?
  • How can I improve my performance through feedback?
The course requires participants to be actively involved by giving a presentation. Therefore you are expected to prepare a short presentation/poster on your research topic beforehand / after the first day of the workshop. Systematic feedback (from the group, the expert, and video) will help you to recognize your strengths and weaknesses, to try out new presentation strategies and thus to improve your presentation skills.

Due to the workshop character, the number or participants is limited to 14. As many students are usually interested in participating in this course, we kindly request that you inform us immediately if you have to cancel your participation after registration.
