Welcome to Professional Communication -b (2021)

Description: The course will take both a theoretical and a practical approach. 
The theoretical approach by conceptualising the planning, presentation and evaluation processes emphasising the communicative aspects. The practical approach by training the different type of communications in online video laboratories where the participants are asked to make two presentations of both a self-selected subject and a self-selected situation, for a live presentation and a pre-recorded pitch. The course is organized in three parts: First, there is a presentation of concepts at a seminar with practical exercises and group discussions. Second, the participants prepare two presentations, which are presented in the followed video laboratories. Third, at the end of the seminar the participants are asked to set up a personal plan for improvement. Before and during the course, participants receive a collection of relevant articles and other material. The issues raised in this course will not be subject-based but participant-based on a general level for scientific communication.

Objectives: The objective is to train and improve the participants’ skills in oral communication especially at scientific conferences and in university teaching.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
