The main objective of the course is to (re)discover the tools for an effective and adapted oral communication. This 2-day workshop is designed to help young scientific researchers develop their communication skills, with the primary focus on presentations before small and large groups.
Working from self-evaluation of their skills and objectives, participants will receive hands-on training in effective techniques in public speaking in academics, including physical preparation (stage presence, voice, non-verbal communication, branding), organization (structure, materials), content (convincing, storytelling, etc.), audience involvement, and the particular problems of presenting in a foreign language. Participants should prepare some their past and current presentations for activities in day 2.
