BRS WORKSHOP | Almost there: preparing for the viva defense / the disputation

BRS In-house Workshop
Instructor:
Dr. Matteo Garavoglia

Description

The seminar aims at preparing students for the viva defense by honing presentation skills so as to effectively argue points convincingly and think on one’s feet during the question and answers session.
The workshop provides information about the formal procedure, the requirements, the social setting of a Ph.D. examination and the do’s and don’ts of a PhD examination. In this seminar we will use video recording as a tool to enable the participants to capitalize on their strengths and to improve their performance. This workshop places particular emphasis on preparing strategically one’s position in the lead up to the viva defense and dealing with the questions & answers session in the second part of the viva defense.

Contents in brief:

  • Selecting a committee: what should I take into account?
  • The do’s and don’ts in oral Ph.D. examinations.
  • How do I stay my ground during the Q&A?
  • How do I deal with stage fright?
  • How do I structure the preparation phase most effectively?

Methodology:

  • Video recording.
  • One to one coaching.
  • Working with a partner.
  • Plenum discussion.
  • A mix of theory and practice.

PARTICIPANTS | This workshop is exclusively for doctoral candidates of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar who will soon be handing in their PhD thesis or have just submitted it.
