The main focus in this short course is on content and structure of a very short talk, but the skills learned here can also be applied to longer presentations. Participants will receive extensive feedback, including a video clip of their own performance. The course requires some preparation for the second session, when all participants have to deliver their talks. 

A good level of proficiency in spoken English is necessary; please contact the instructor for more information. 

Admission

These courses are open free of charge to regular PhD candidates and Research Master students of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. 'External' PhD candidates may also join, but only if there is room; moreover, these students are required to pay a fee per session. 

Further, in the interest of an optimal learning experience, the instructor reserves the right to adjust the composition of groups to include representatives of the different Institutes as much as possible – so first come, first served will not always be possible.
