Workshop Introduction

IndTech graduate school organized the Rhetoric workshop for Ph.D. students to enhance their presentation skills on 13th May 2022, Eskilstuna campus. Elaine Eksvärd, the experienced communication consultant, was invited to coach the young researchers for the whole day.

Episode 1: Goals and students expectations

The common challenge most researchers face is how to make the academic presentation engaging. She used presentation examples on different occasions to help them understand the importance of clarity, engagement, and fun.

Episode 2: The tools

Elaine provided powerful tools to facilitate the students to break the routine by building the first impression from self-introduction. Each student got individual training regarding the details such as the voice, the gesture, eye contact, etc.

Episode 3: The presentations

The workshop aimed to support their 5 minutes pitch at the upcoming IndTech graduate school conference, where they will present themselves and research topics for more than 50 participants.

Research Tracks

Four research tracks have been designed to match the existing academic excellence and the development needs as well as the industrial strategic priorities, challenges, and competence needs. Accordingly, a comprehensive postgraduate course program provides strong support for the research.

My career cross academia and companies. I have been longing to return to the university and the environment with the community and varied projects, and cross-border collaborations.
