Oral eloquence still counts when you need to explain, persuade, collaborate, and lead.  This intensive weekend course will help you learn to use your voice, body, and personal presence with confidence when speaking to others.  You will learn to channel stage-fright into creative energy and to organize your thoughts into a structure your audience can grasp. Students will write, revise, rehearse and present a short speech; they will also have opportunities to practice speaking impromptu. Since classes must be held remotely, we will also explore best practices for public speaking through a webcam. Credit will be awarded in Public Speaking.

The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings.
