Course Description:

The objectives of this course are to understand fundamental mechanics, processes, and techniques of communication that make for superior presentations and richer public communication experiences. Through various readings, many presentation sessions, and constructive criticism and discussion, this course enhances our capacities to respond appropriately to a variety of presentation situations. This mission includes understanding the origins of the different anxieties, insecurities, and fears that often undercut our presentational experiences. Ultimately, the goal of this course is to introduce students to the different relational demands that make for superior presentations and the communication practices that build the constitution to meet such demands.
