Professional communication is the third out of four courses on transferable skills recommended by EU Principles for Innovative Training’ transferable skills (European Commission, 2011). The goal of the course is to practice and reflect on the communication and presentation skills needed for different contexts, namely oral presentations (e.g. conference, pitching ideas) to different audiences (e.g. academic conferences and non-academic public presentation), using different aids (e.g. posters, PowerPoint) and in different environments (e.g. physical and virtual). Additionally, it provides several tips and strategies for participants to use during and after their PhD study. The course will be online, with small lectures, hands-on exercises, group-work, presentations and discussions in plenum as main activities.
