BRS WORKSHOP | Thesis Defense Training

BRS In-house Workshop
Instructor: Dr. Malte Engel

During their thesis defense, doctoral candidates have to give a presentation of 30 to 45 minutes which is followed by a discussion. This workshop is designed to prepare doctoral candidates optimally for this situation. In the first part of the workshop, the participants get practical tips for their introductory presentation: how to structure the presentation, how to build up the central argument, what language to use, etc.
 
The second part of the workshop deals with typical problems that occur during the discussion: How to respond to criticism and "killer-questions", how to deal with stage fright and black-outs, etc.
In the third part of the workshop, participants get the chance to give their presentation and to receive feedback from the group and from the trainer.
