Oral Presentation Skills Course
Notably, the presentation skills course on Tuesday March 1st will ask each course participant to give a short presentation. Depending on the number of participants and the time-constraints, this presentation should be 10 minutes (maximum) or less. It is up to the participant what presentation to give, but participants are strongly encouraged to use the opportunity to gain feedback on their Internal Research Review (IRR) talk. If the IRR talk is planned to be more than 10 minutes, the participant may wish to give a shorter - plenary-version - of their IRR talk.
Please notice that there is homework for the Oral Presentation Skills Course.
Internal Research Reviews
This first IRR presentation should help to orient the AWESCO group as to the research topics of the ESR's. Each presentation has a 30 minute slot. This slot should be divided between a descriptive talk (10 - 15 minutes), and a discussion among the AWESCO group (15-20 minutes).
Topics that are suggested to be included are:
Project Management & Strategic Skills
Please notice that there is homework for the Project Management Skills Course.
Please find here a map which may be useful for orientation purposes, and includes links to some suggested accommodation sites: mapsAWESCO_0.pdf
The S-Bahn schedule can be found here: BSB_Fahrplan 2016.pdf
We hope you had a lovely week with us in Freiburg.
