Do you want to clearly explain your academic work or research to others, using language that anyone can understand? Would you like to know how to use sounds, images, and other media to create more engaging presentations? This short course can help! In this course, students will develop their academic, presentation, and communication skills as they create a short multimodal presentation. The course is structured as a practicum, which combines class sessions with hands-on work and one-to-one consultations with the instructor. By the end of the course, students will produce a short but high-quality presentation that showcases their academic work or research in a multimodal format. Multimodal presentations use several modes of communication (images, sounds, voice, animations, etc.) to communicate in ways that are more interesting, memorable, and clearer. This course is open to all international students (undergraduate or graduate) but will be of particular interest to students working on professionalization goals, such as preparing for internships, conferences, research presentations, or the job market.
