Teilnehmende für englischsprachiges Präsentationscoaching gesucht

© DAAD Tokyo/ Atsuko Kohata

Bewerben Sie sich bis 02. April 2023 für ein individuelles Präsentationscoaching des DAAD mit der bilingualen Trainerin Frau Atsuko Kohata.

Presenting is a key competence for researchers and scientists. That is why the DAAD Regional Office Tokyo invites students and young researchers from Germany and Japan to apply to an intensive online presentation coaching. In direct conversation with bilingual expert Atsuko Kohata, you will learn how to improve your presentation techniques and effectively communicate your areas of interest to an international audience unfamiliar with the subject. After the coaching, you will give a presentation in English at the event series “Kigaru ni Austausch” in front of German and Japanese students and researchers supported by DAAD. A certificate of completion can be issued upon request.

How does the coaching work?

The coaching consists of five modules. Participation in all modules is required for completion. The program is held completely online. Between modules you will work on your individual presentations.
