English presentation skills for academic purposes

Active participation in debates and at conferences considerably enhances your visibility in the field. Any presentation invites valuable instant responses that written communication cannot provide. Yet presenting your research project in English can be a daunting prospect. This workshop is designed to help those who do not have English as their native language master the art of the successful presentation. Participants will learn how to identify good practices and models and develop effective strategies to present to an interdisciplinary audience and put their message across in English. The use of a ‘presentation phrasebank’ will be explained and applied in a ‘hands-on’ practice session. The ‘starter-kit’ phrasebank can be developed beyond the workshop as a self-learning technique for building a portfolio of versatile expressions that can be used in any oral communicative situation.

Target group:

Academics who wish to improve their presentation skills in English. The level of English should be intermediate or above.
