Marlinda's workshop: How to Judge
From 19:00 Monday, December 11
To 20:30 Monday, December 11
At T3-16

Description and links
Sometimes you get a fourth while you thought you would be first, or you feel you’ve done terrible and still take the win. Making an objective call In the heat of the moment is difficult, but not for judges. Marlinda van der Hoff, one of our finest judges, will teach you these judging skills in her workshop on the 11th of december.

During the judging workshop Marlinda will talk about how to judge, what you can expect from judges and the do’s and don’ts for a debater from the perspective of a judge. After the workshop you can judge with Marlinda in an actual debate and experience the 15 minute judging process while learning how to judge. During this you also will learn how to improve your concentration skills and make effective notes during the debate so the weigh off between the arguments become more clear. So if you want to know how judges work (and manipulate them to give you the win in every debate) then make sure to attend the judging workshop!

Latest updates

Welcome to the website of the Erasmus Debating Society. EDS is an independent Rotterdam-based debating society, the oldest in the Netherlands. Founded in 1989, it has become one of Europe’s most successful and well-known debating societies. The Erasmus Debating Society is the best place for all people to learn how to speak confidently, give thorough analyses on all subjects and most of all: how to have fun while debating! We are an open and informal society with most of our members being students at Erasmus University. Because we have many international members our weekly debating evenings are generally conducted in English. We pride ourselves on being a big family for all those who share our passion for speeches, on being the best thing that ever happened to those people who at first did not yet feel like they were confident speakers.

Students and debaters

Every Monday we have a debate evening consisting of two debating rounds and a social drink afterwards. These evenings are held in the Mandeville building room T3-16 on Campus Woudestein at 18:30. Besides our regular debates on Monday we travel around the world for competitions, organize various workshops to improve your skills, and have fun at many amazing socials. You can check out the Facebook plugin on this page for updates and upcoming events. Note that our social events don’t show up there as they are handled in a private group.

Other societies

As one of the Erasmus University student organizations we are always open to a collaboration with other societies. In addition we offer training related to debating, critical thinking, and public speaking. More information can be found here.

Companies and organizations

Being a successful debating society we offer training by European debating champions. This can be public speaking, critical and analytical thinking, or specific training for debating. More information can be found here.
