Prerequisites: None
This class is designed to give the School of Continuing Studies student experience in the practice of researching, preparing, analyzing, and delivering public and personal presentations most often found in the workplace. One of the primary focuses of this course is to connect the role and practice of public speaking to students’ current or future career goals. The course frames public speaking from a real world, professional approach. The interplay between audience analysis and speaker goals, and the development of personal style is emphasized. Assignments are relevant to adult learners and/or students in the professional world/ workplace. Various types of oral presentations in a variety of settings including interviews, small groups, board meetings, public forums and computer-enhanced speaking opportunities are explored.
