  • Presentation Training for a Virtual Stage: Engaging the Listener in Your Talk

    Online, Oct 28-28, 2021

    From Anna Thünen:

    Dear all,

    I would like to announce our equal opportunity meeting/coaching. The title is

    Presentation Training for a Virtual Stage: Engaging the Listener in Your Talk

    And it will be delivered online by the coach Ric Oqcita.

    Dates: 28th of October and 1st of November.

    We have 10 places and fill them on the first come-first served basis, where we give preference to the members of the equal opportunity group. Just email me (thuenen@igpm.rwth-aachen.de) to register.

    This is a great opportunity to polish your online presentation skills and I am looking very much forward to meeting you there.

    After the training, we want to practice and there will be a half day online workshop with research talks by the participants of the coaching. This takes place the 17th of November. Carolin and Hedwig will provide details on that soon.

    Best regards,


  • EqOp Online Research Workshop: present and connect

    Online, Nov 17-17, 2021

    The workshop is coupled with the presentation training announced by Anna Thünen recently. Participants of the coaching are encouraged to apply the taught (online) presentation skills.

    It will be a half day online workshop with 15 minutes research talks by the participants.

    It will be open for (young) researchers and preferably the participants of the Equal Opportunity training, to give you an opportunity to connect with each other and polish some presentation skills in a relaxed environment!

    We expect the workshop to cover half a day, depending on the number of participants, and asked Prof. Dr. Claudia Totzeck to speak as a keynote speaker. Just email Hedwig Keller to register.
