Semester EventsIDeFix

IDeFix is the name of the theatre group of the Institut für Deutsch als Fremdsprachenphilologie (IDF) and the International Relations Office. We want to encourage all students interested in theatre to take the stage. We believe that acting is one of the most spirited, joy-filled and effective ways to learn German and experience the language in all its facets.

IDeFix Communication Training: Successful communication in the digital age

Main focus: Communication in video conferences


Due to the Covid19-crisis, the international theatre group IDeFix has decided to take a break from performing on stage. Instead, we will offer an online seminar focusing on the requirements of online seminars as well the digital age in general: How is successful online communication achieved? How do I competently present myself and my ideas in a video conference? What should I consider when conversing in emails at university and in my professional life?

These questions will be discussed as a group followed by numerous practical exercises. Our training seminar will benefit you both in the remainder of your academic programme as well as in your future career. Because nowadays, personal appearance and communication skills  - be they face-to-face or through video - are more sought after than ever.
