Open lectures, in-class hands-on work, individual homework, presentation in front of an audience.


Attendants aiming at being awarded 0.5 ECTS credit will have to upload in Moodle (i) a very brief video-recorded oral presentation after the first session and (ii) a final one-page report after the second session. Individual feedback will be provided by the lecturer once the module has been completed.

Más información

To be facilitated in electronic format by the lecturer.

  • The module will be conducted in English in full: A working knowledge of the language (such as the customary one at international research conferences, that is, a CEF B2 = upper intermediate level) is a requirement
  • Attendants should bring a laptop or tablet to carry out online work during the in-class sessions
  • The recorded homework does not require anything but a smartphone with which to record and send a three-minute sequence

La asistencia presencial de al menos un 80% del curso es un requisito imprescindible para la obtención del certificado del curso, independientemente del motivo que lo provoque, ya sea justificado o injustificado. Se realizará control de presencia al inicio y al final del curso, siendo responsabilidad del participante informar sobre ausencias intermedias.

La anulación anticipada de la participación en un curso no supone nunca una penalización para poder ser seleccionado en otro.

One 4-hour session + one 2-hour session:

  • Lecturing on what makes presentations work (and not)
  • Hands-on activities for enhancing the effectiveness of oral presentations
  • Actual presentations (and assessment)

A thorough revision of accompanying materials. Submission of a very brief recorded presentation (together with the accompanying visual aids) that shows the course contents (as well as the recommended references) have been actually applied to produce an enhanced oral presentation. In addition, a one-page document summarizing (i) those things that have had a significant impact and (ii) those aspects which will actually be applied (and how) in further practice.
