'Presenting your research' - PhD course

An important part of scientific work consists of presenting research results to the international scientific community. This course provides rules and guidelines for three different modes of presenting results. You will acquire and practise the skills involved in each of these three different manners of presentation. You will be required to write and revise a short paper, give an oral presentation, and make a poster. The assignments will be reviewed by the instructors. For the oral and poster presentations, course participants also give and receive feedback on each other’s work.
