ORALCOMM 120: Speaking Effectively in Digital Settings (ORALCOMM 220)

How do you present effectively during a webinar or a Skype interview? What's different about speaking in digital vs. face-to-face spaces? In this hands-on, learn-by-doing class, you will practice giving presentations via digital platforms to gain familiarity with best practices and techniques for audience engagement, while developing your oral communication competencies more broadly. Assignments will include an interactive webinar and a short video presentation of your choice, such as a video abstract, instructional video, or vlog. While learning to present using digital technologies like Zoom is an aspect of the course, rhetorical approaches for message design, presentation planning, arrangement, and delivery that are useful across settings will be emphasized. You will receive individualized support and engage in peer feedback and reflection to develop your speaking skills. Some class meetings will take place synchronously online. A prior course in public speaking (e.g., Oral Comm 117/217) is recommended.
