FA20-2-6
Much of what we do nowadays is online – including presentations. Are you preparing for a virtual conference, dissertation defense or an informational meeting with fellow scholars? In this short course, you will learn how to effectively prepare and deliver presentations via video conferencing. We will become familiar with virtual presentation platforms, learn how to develop appropriate form and content for a slideshow presentation, and sharpen verbal and non-verbal communication skills that make for a powerful delivery. This will be an online course with hour-long online class meetings held twice a week (live instruction) and online activities that students will complete on their own (asynchronous instruction). The students and the instructor will decide on the meeting times together based on student availability. More
