Teaching Oral Communication: From Invention to Delivery

Wednesday, January 28, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Suzanne Lane, Director, WRAP

Jan/28 Wed 10:00AM-12:00PM E39-335

Enrollment: Unlimited: Advance sign-up required

By learning the stages of developing, structuring, rehearsing, and delivering presentations, students can become comfortable with a live audience, and use the interaction as a tool to develop their thinking. This workshop will help instructors think through their goals for oral assignments, so that they can scaffold the steps involved in developing presentations.  Workshop participants will be able to work on (re)designing assignments for their current or future courses by developing (i) a deeper understanding of fundamental oral communication concepts, (ii) strategies to integrate oral communication assignments into a class, and (iii) techniques and tools to provide feedback on student presentations.

Sponsor(s): Comparative Media Studies/Writing
