An advanced oral communication course, the focus provides instruction and practice opportunities in an academic seminar-style format. The focus is "listener-oriented," that is, how effectively the speaker guides the listener in facilitating an understanding of the information. Two skills-areas are stressed: (1) effective organization of information, and (2) effective speech presentation skills.

In class students will study elements of effective oral communication, examine their uses in recorded video samples, and adapt them to personal use. Through a variety of speaking assignments, students are responsible for presenting information, either individually or as members of a small panel team, then opening the floor for group interaction and guiding discussion. Audience members play a reciprocal listener/speaker role by paraphrasing points made, asking for clarification, offering their own viewpoints, and raising related issues.

IGSI Seminar and Practicum is designed to provide language support instruction to IGSI's who have shown considerable ability (4 on the screening) in using academic English, but who need additional feedback, evaluation, and suggestions for improvement in their language and communicative skills in the laboratory, classroom, or office hour assignments. Participants will be recommended by IGSI workshop coordinators and/or screening evaluators. Individual observation of teaching, with and without video, and consultations are the primary mode of instruction, with additional seminar meeting to discuss issues of common concern to all enrolled, such as getting and using mid-semester feedback from students. Emphasis is placed on whatever weaknesses both the IGSI and instructor identify, such as skills and strategies for effective presentations, negotiations, and other interactions with the students and course faculty.

Individual videoing and consultation will take place as well as seminar discussions on appropriate language and culture for the classroom, lab, and/ or office hour. Emphasis will be on improving presentation skills, i.e., effective use of body language, gestures, stress, intonation, etc., listening and responding skills in the classroom, eliciting and negotiation techniques in the office hours and lab, and general interaction skills needed in the IGSI situation.
