Note: This course can not be combined in an individual programme with ECS65700 Presentation Skills.

The course offers students the possibility to practice the skills that are necessary to deliver a good presentation. The students will gain insight in their strengths and learning opportunities with respect to presentation skills, and will learn how to reflect on their own performance and that of peers.
Students start at their own level of competence and can practice during various settings.

Learning outcomes:

After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- give a presentation (5-10 minutes) using supportive non-verbal behaviour;
- prepare and show structure in a presentation;
- give feedback to and receive feedback from fellow students according to feedback guidelines;
- show responsibility for their own learning process according to individually formulated learning goals;
- reflect on his/her own learning process with help of a reflection model.


The course consists of 12 contact hours distributed over three sessions of 4 hours each. Next to these sessions students spend at least 12 hours on preparation and practicing of presentations, reading, giving (peer) feedback and reflecting. During the three sessions several aspects of preparing and delivering a presentation will be discussed, practiced and demonstrated.
The students have a central role during these sessions: they will do short presentation assignments themselves and will give each other feedback. During the last two sessions each student delivers a presentation and receives feedback from his/her fellow students and the trainer/tutor. All presentations will be videotaped for reflection purposes.


The final grade will be based on the quality of:
- the presentations (50%);
- the reflection report (50%).

For both elements a minimum mark of 5.5 is required.


An online study guide will be provided.
