Presentation in Business and Science

Lecturer Term Offered credit points
Dr. Melanie Ebener Summer/Winter term 1 credit point

The elective will take place in summer term 2022. This generally takes place in attendance; there may be one or two sessions in Zoom unrelated to Corona in order to also work on online presentation skills. This will be discussed in the first session.
It will take place on Thursday, 28.4, in attendance. Seven sessions are planned, each on Thursdays from 10.30 to 12 hrs. If too few participants can come at this time, the event can alternatively take place in two full-day blocks on Fridays.

Those interested must register in advance, deadline: Thu., 14.4.22. The number of participants is limited. Please register in Moodle in the group "Wahlfach Präsentieren (SiTe) SoSe 2022". The password for BUW students is "3017".
Registration is possible until the course is full. If you don't get a place anymore, you can go on the waiting list or write me an email; sometimes participants drop out after the introduction.
The location of the introductory meeting and other dates will be announced in Moodle when you register.

Learning objectives of the course "Presenting in Business and Science"

If you work in occupational health and safety, you often have to present facts: e.g. in front of employees who are supposed to behave in a safety-conscious manner, or in front of management who you want to convince of the benefits of a measure. In scientific work, too, you often pass on your findings in presentations. Form and content must then be convincing. Therefore, I offer a seminar with these topics:

• How do I systematically prepare a presentation, a lecture?
• How do I create "good" visualisations?
• Voice, language, body - important instruments of presenting
• What do I do if... (Spontaneities, incidents, breakdowns - and always that stage fright!)
• Ways of presenting and interacting in Zoom

You can only learn to present well by presenting. Therefore, you will prepare visualisations and a short presentation and present them in the seminar. You will receive detailed feedback and tips on how to improve in the future.

For a credit point, you are required to participate in the entire seminar, give your own presentation and - if necessary - revise it after the seminar. The presentation of a Bachelor's or study thesis (for practice purposes) is possible by arrangement.
