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 for university and for work – online and on site

A theatre seminar as communication training for university and for work? Absolutely! Acting is not only a lot of fun, but also a communication training related to real-life. Whether you are on a stage, give a presentation in class or interview for a job in front of a webcam: Each interaction aims at connecting with your audience or conversation partners. You want to present yourself and your case as best as you can, but at the same time, you need to perceive the other side in order to create a fruitful exchange of everyone involved.

Our seminar includes, among others, exercises for body perception and expression, the training of breath, voice, articulation and accentuation. We will work with texts in order to train your manner of speaking and we will rehearse talking in front of an audience. This includes the discussion and trying out of different presentation techniques as well as how to deal with stage fright and nervousness.

We will also have a look at communication in video conferences: How is successful online communication achieved? What are the most important aspects when setting up my working space? How do I act in front of a camera?

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.
