FA20-1-2
There will be a synchronous all-members lecture and discussion session on Zoom every week. If a synchronous online lesson is not possible for a certain week, the instructor will post materials (e.g., writing and grammar resources, the instructor’s recorded lecture) on Brightspace (Purdue’s new learning management system) and expect students to study by themselves and complete some learning tasks. In the other half of the week, each student will have an individualized or group conference with the instructor via Zoom, during which time the instructor will check on the self-learning session of the week, brainstorm with students for a writing task, encourage peer feedback, and/or give the instructor’s own feedback about the student(s)’ writing. The finalized dates and time for this short course will be flexible depending on geographic locations of students and will be decided when we meet on August 31 at 10:00 AM on Zoom. You will receive an email from the instructor with the course syllabus, the Zoom link for online lessons and conferences, and the link to our course site on Brightspace. More

During each virtual class session, students will study a different aspect of English pronunciation such as vowels, consonants, or stress. The goal of this course is to help students improve clear pronunciation for conversation, learn useful strategies to use in the future, and improve knowledge about how the sound system of English works. Students will be asked to practice in pairs, groups, and individually using a range of materials and activities that the instructor will provide. Students will have virtual practice sessions outside of regular class time with another student from class once per week to practice the course skills, and then discuss their experiences with the class. Additionally, students will have the chance to get diagnostic feedback from the professor and meet 1-1 over Zoom to develop an individual plan for improving clear pronunciation. This course meets Monday/Wednesday 1-2:15pm Indiana time (Eastern Time Zone, USA), using the Zoom meeting platform. More

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
