GraduateCenterLMU Workshop for Doctoral Candidates

The aim of this workshop is to prepare and develop self-explanatory slides based on your own research findings, e.g. for a conference or your thesis defense.

In the theoretical part of the workshop, you will learn techniques for structuring complex information logically and for designing easy-to-understand slides. In the practical part, you will then apply these techniques to your very own research findings and produce your own presentation. By the end of the workshop, you will get a complete draft of your academic presentation.

Important: This workshop focuses on the logic of good presentations, it does not cover the use of presentation software like PowerPoint.

Workshop topics:

  • Designing optimal slides
  • Identifying the context of a presentation
