Seminar Opening

The seminar opening will be held on Tuesday, 18/04/2017 at 11:30 in room 1/368A

Short Presentation

In your short presentation, you will provide a brief overview on your selected topic.
This includes the following aspects:
  1. What is in your topic?
  2. Which literature sources did you research so far?
  3. What is your idea for a demonstration?
The short presentation should be no longer than 3 slides (in addition to your title slide) and take max. 5 minutes. Following your short presentations, the advisors will provide you with feedback and hints for your full presentations.

Hints for your Presentation

  • As rule of thumb you can plan for 2 minutes per slide. Significantly more slides per minute can be difficult to perceive for the audience.
  • Prior to creating your presentation, you should think about: What should be the main message of my presentation? What should the audience remember after my presentation?
    Based on these considerations you should create your presentation.
  • Here you can find some useful hints http://www.garrreynolds.com/Presentation/

Seminar Days

The seminar presentations will be held in half-day blocks. The dates will be announced here later.

Review

  • Each seminar participant has to review exactly three reports. The reviews are not anonymous.
  • Use the review forms provided in the VSR Seminar Workflow, one per report.
  • Following the review phase, each seminar participant will receive the three peer reviews of his report and, if necessary, additional comments by the advisors. You will then have one more week to improve your report according to this feedback.
  • The seminar grade will consider the final report.
    All comments in the reviews are for improving the text and therefore in the interest of the author.
