Presenting Your Research Confidently

Have you ever wondered how you can present your research results in a more confident manner? In this course you will learn how to improve both your preparation and your presentation skills. You will discover how to design your visuals in the clearest and most appropriate way, structure your presentation correctly, get and keep the audience’s attention, make good use of your voice and body language, and handle questions from the audience.

Practice by presenting your own research results

A useful feature of this course is that you will be able to practice presenting your own research results, and will get feedback to improve your presentation. This will enable you to make adjustments that will render your talk more effective. Also, you will be less nervous when giving your next presentation, as you will already have had an opportunity to overcome any weaknesses. By presenting your research results confidently, you will be able to attract and retain your audience’s interest, thereby enabling you to make your point more effectively.

Please note: participants in this course are required to hand in assignments every week, deadlines will be on Thursdays and Saturdays.

We strongly encourage you to have a presentation ready before the start of the course. This could be a presentation you've given before or one that is part of your current research project. Having one ready means you do not have to work on the content so much, because you have already decided on that. You can then fully focus on improving your presenting skills.
Of course you can also participate in the course if you do not have a talk ready. In that case, we advise you to schedule in more preparation time.
