Learning outcomes:
This compulsory elective course is based on the mandatory Bachelor module "Professional Presentations". The focus of this module will be the oral presentation of a project carried out at university, student conference or the workplace.
To this end, students will deepen their strategic knowledge in order to be able to give professional, subject-specific presentations, define quality criteria and further develop their language skills. They will test and hone these strategies, their knowledge and their skills in short presentations at different presentation phases and receive feedback from their fellow students. Students will learn how to combine the phases of their presentation to form a whole, how to enhance their presentations with the help of visual aids, how to prepare themselves for their presentation in a targeted manner and finally, how to give their presentation.
