Concept and Design of Academic Presentations (January 25, 2022 | online)

Written by

Starting Point

Among all the challenges you might face being a scientist, you should be able to effectively communicate your research and share your knowledge to a wide range of audiences by the means of academic presentations. 
To draw your audience in and to get your main message across, you need a clear concept, proper slides, and convincing visuals. 

The workshop conveys a basic knowledge about concept, design, and visualisation to present research content visually well organized and compelling. The course will equip you with both the concepts and the practical design skills to create convincing presentations and provides the possibility to put directly into practice what you have learned as well as to get useful feedback from group and trainer.
