Oral Presentations and the Academic Conversation: A Writing Across the Curriculum IAP Workshop
Thursday, January 31, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST
Enrollment: Limited: First come, first served (no advance sign-up)
This interactive workshop is geared to instructors across the disciplines who are interested in integrating oral presentation into their classes. We will discuss effective strategies to teach the oral component in CI classes as an act of critical thinking. Together, we will define goals for a variety of speaking genres in science and humanities classes. Participants will collaborate in sharing good practices from their own experience. Finally, we will explore some practical templates to teach oral presentation that encourage students to practice the following skills: (1) communicating complex ideas in accessible language; (2) creating presentations that clearly define goals and argument or hypothesis; (3) organizing presentations in the service of developing ideas in the broader context of the field.
All WAC workshops are open to faculty and teaching assistants who are interested in integrating writing and speaking into their subjects.
