Presenting and storytelling

Many scientific presentations are a bit boring. Why? Because they often adhere to a scientific structure and style, with little emotion, movement, and barely any audio and visuals. It doesn't have to be that way. Everyone can learn to give an accessible, inspiring and exciting presentation without losing any content. That's what we learn in this module.


    Please note: this module is taught in Dutch.

    What will we be doing?

    The course begins by looking together at which forms of presentation there are. To do so, we immerse ourselves in worlds that are completely different to that of science, such as theatre, comedy and film, dance, politics and music, where we'll find great examples of other ways of presenting - inspiration that we will use in the rest of the course.


    We will then work towards a final presentation. Students choose their own theme and audience, resulting in great variety and surprising presentations. We make sure together that these presentations are as good as possible. And we do that with pleasure, enthusiasm and humour, with plenty of scope for discovering your own style. After the final presentations, we toast the great result together.


    This module is taught by Walter Breukers. Among other things, Walter is theatre maker and presenter and has performed hundreds of times in all sorts of settings. He has, for example, written and performed four full-length theatre shows. Walter also did the Honours Academy at Radboud University, where he studied Biomedical Sciences and philosophy.


    The module consists of five sessions on Tuesday evenings from 18:30 to 21:00.

    The Radboud Honours Academy believes that learning is best experienced when we work together in the same space, so physical presence is required. If you know that there is one or more sessions that you cannot attend, please choose a different module, so that you can get the best out of this experience, with your fellow students.
