Workshop "Mastering Q&A strategies"

Event ended
In this workshop we will discuss Q&A sessions that take place after presentations or seminars. First, we will take the position of the listener and practice techniques of efficient questioning to make sure the presenter hears us, understands us and gives the answer to our question. We will very briefly revise related grammar (direct and indirect questions). After that we will assume the position of the presenter and practice answering questions, paying special attention to techniques for clarification and admitting elegantly that we do not have the answer, as well as strategies for avoiding or postponing answering. At the end of the workshop we will use your research topics to model a Q&A session and practice all these techniques and strategies.
