ECS Workshop (Dec. 2016)
The Early Career Scientist Soft-Skills Workshop took place from December 7th-9th 2016 in Stuttgart.
During the first two days, a workshop on oral presentation skills took place. The participants had prepared a five-minute presentation before the workshop and the story and design of the presentations, as well as the body language of the presenters were discussed during the workshop.
A workshop on academic writing took place on the third day. The participants had prepared a scientific text before the workshop. The choice of words, sentence structure and paragraph structure were discussed during the workshop.
Feedback and insights from the coaches were very valuable and will help the ECS to present and write papers in the future. The many hands-on exercises and the small group size made the workshop very interactive.
