Writing and Presentation Skills
Berlin Graduate School Muslim Cultures and Societies (BGSMCS)
Winter Term 2008-9
Individual schedule; see Schedule page for details.

General info

This is a dedicated class for students and faculty of the BGSMCS. Our first meeting will be on 15 October at 11 am.


There is one major concern that every writing course tries to address: how to get clear thinking on paper. And it doesn't stop there, of course, because meaning isn't created on a page but in a reader's brain. Speaking of mind manipulation: have you ever passed the elevator test? Done the cognitive three-step? Or wondered why PowerPoint is Evil®? All of that you will learn here.

What's more, for the presentation in your "Kolloquium" you will get a two-hour personal coaching. E-Mail me for an appointment, preferably two weeks in advance of your presentation.

[Update] We will continue the course on an individual schedule. For appointments see the Schedule page.
