Upon successful completion of this course, students are expected to be able to: describe the role of speakers as “credibility builders” for the audience and be aware of the non-verbal cues communicated by speakers to an audience (clothing, kinesics, postures, gestures, haptics, and paralinguistics); prepare research, practice organizational skills, and practice delivery skills for the preparation and presentation of speeches; extend their ability to listen critically and analyze public speeches; create and write their own public speeches and performances for a targeted audience (in person, through video and audio); and extend the ability to perform in front of a broader audience.
The goal of this course is to prepare students to be confident and excellent communicators. The course is designed to teach students creatively in how to speak effectively in public and identify the characteristics of effective public speakers. In short, this course teaches students to prepare appropriate public speeches for different types of audiences and purposes and also to explain the roles of speakers to convey a message to the audience and be at their best in presenting verbally or non-verbally.
