GRAD 505: Academic Public Speaking

Summary

New short course format! Four class meetings only, starting February 2020.

Full Description

Giving a successful presentation requires many components. This course will address audience, organization of content, effective visuals, non-verbal and verbal skills such as chunking, pacing, stress and intonation. Grammar and pronunciation will be polished along the way as students will have ample opportunity to practice. The goal is to raise confidence and refine the skills needed in graduate classes and research presentations. This is a great class for students who have already taken GRAD 501 or 503.

Class will meet 5-6:50 PM on February 5, 12, 19, and March 4.
