MSc Psychology (research) students. The course is available for students in their second year of the research master’s programme. However, for students who started the master’s programme in February, special arrangements will be made.
The course consists of both plenary (2) and subgroup sessions (6). In the first two plenary sessions the general background to giving an effective presentation is sketched. Students are taught a specific structure for their talks. This is intensively trained in practice in the subgroup sessions to allow for optimal feedback. In the subgroup sessions, students are also taught how to present their research on a poster.
