Critical Reasoning and Debating in Science
This course is aimed at doctoral and postdoctoral researchers who would like to improve their skills in oral arguing and debating. The focus of this seminar is not on rhetorics but on understanding the logic basics of reasoning and making valid conclusions and explanations.
Participants have the chance to learn techniques helping them to recognise weak or strong arguments, find their own arguments and stay on top of complex debates.
Participants who have attended the course "Critical Reasoning and Logic" can extend their skills in oral debating, but attendees without prior knowledge are also welcome.
Dr. Romy Jaster studied philosophy and linguistics and is now a scientific employee at the chair of theoretical philosophy at Humboldt University Berlin. She has been teaching in academic and non-academic environments since many years.
