Time frame of the talk Gain excess to a new topic Get accustomed to working with English Primary literature Consolidate the lecture topics Learn how to give a talk 30 minutes speaking + 10 minutes topic related discussion + 5 minutes didactic discussion Grading

6 CP; Grade based on talk and test / exam Structure of the talk Introduction (5 min) Main part (20 min) Motivation Maybe introduction as well as outline Take the background and state of knowledge of the

audience into account What is the audience expecting Summary (5 min) Sum up the central concepts take home message Sources for literature? Search engines e.g., Wikipedia Scientific databases, wie e.g. PubMed(public) ISI Web(from inside the MWN) Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Bibliotheken LMU, TUM, MPI fr Biochemie (translations English Deutsch: Slide design Not too much content per slide No superfluous information ca. 2 min per slide

A picture is worth a thousand words use a uniform, big font Text at 32 pt is better than Label diagrams thoroughly text at 16 pt Wie halte ich einen Seminarvortrag 1. Wenn man nun so einen Seminarvortrag halten muss, dann empfiehlt es sich, mglichst lange Stze auf die Folien zu schreiben, damit die Zuhrer nach dem Vortrag aus den Folienkopien noch wissen, was man eigentlich gesagt hat.

2. Whrend so einem Vortrag schaut sowieso jeder zum Projektor, also kann man das selbst ruhig auch tun - damit kontrolliert man gleichzeitig auch, ob der Beamer wirklich alles projiziert, was auf dem Laptop zu sehen ist. Auerdem kann man so den Strom fr das Laptop-Display sparen. 3. bersichtsfolien am Anfang sind langweilig, enthalten keinen Inhalt und nehmen den Zuhrern die ganze Spannung. Schlielich gibt es im Kino am Anfang auch keine Inhaltsangabe. 4. Powerpoint kann viele lustige Effekte, hat tolle Designs und Animationen. Die sollte man zur Auflockerung des Vortrags unbedingt alle benutzen, um zu zeigen, wie gut man das Tool im Griff hat. 5. Nicht zu wenig auf die Folien schreiben. Man wei ja nie, ob man sie nicht doch ausdrucken muss, und man kann so wertvolle Zeit sparen, wenn man nicht weiterschalten muss. 6. Man sollte versuchen, mglichst lange zu reden. Die Zeitvorgaben sind nur fr die Leute, die nicht genug wissen - eigentlich will der Prfer sehen, dass man sich auch darber hinaus mit dem Thema beschftigt hat, und wer nicht ordentlich berzieht, kann nicht genug wissen. Wenn du was zu sagen hast, schaffe dir dein Forum! Not like

this Giving the talk Give a trial talk Practice the introduction Come up with transitions between slides Address the audience Talk to the audience (not your notes)

Use the laser pointer Keep eye contact with the audience Your are the only one to notice small mistakes Frequent mistakes the speech is halting a lot (long pauses) The talk is too long No central theme is followed The central point is lost in unnecessary details The audience is not the wall (reactions as feedback)

Apologies dont belong in the talk Questions and Answers Dont fear the questions!!! No one prepared as thoroughly as you yourself Questions friendly pointed but not aggressive comprehension questions during the talk save further questions for after the talk Answers

keep your answers short (epic answers seem insecure) dont get defensive summary Practice the talk at least once The talk is a dialog, not a monolog Show your enthusiasm ! The central point has to be clear Assessing the talk

Criteria: Structure Understandability Logical structure (important: Conclusion!) Scientific quotes Optical appeal Tension (sway the audience) A quote I need 3 days to prepare a good, spontaneous 3 minute speech. Mark Twain contacts
