This advanced oral communication course is a seminar that focuses on how to help listeners better understand what you are saying. Students learn how to organize information effectively and how to give oral presentations. Students study elements of effective oral communication, examine how they are used 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 up 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.
