Public Speaking for Research Purposes – ZIP 0508-PSRP-OG-ZIP
The course is addressed to doctoral students who seek to improve their academic public speaking skills by gaining practical knowledge of public speaking as well as practicing it in a friendly classroom environment. The specific objective of the course is to develop skills needed for effective presentation of research for both informative and persuasive purposes. These skills are developed by learning the principles of and guidelines for effective public speaking in the knowledge context and by preparing and delivering several oral presentations on topics of participants’ academic interest. In practicing speechmaking special attention is given to matters particularly important in the academic contexts, such as selection of supporting materials, acknowledgement of sources, comprehensive description of own and other authors’ research, logical reasoning and effective arguing of claims, and the proper use of visual materials, especially slides. In addition, even though the course is communication rather than language oriented, its completion will improve the participants’ academic and general English.
Schedule: 15 weekly synchronous/asynchronous classes, including a 60-minute meeting on Zoom, held on Mondays at 17.00–18.00 and 30 minutes of asynchronous work on the Kampus platform to be completed each week.
Dates of online Zoom meetings: 19.10, 26.10, 2.11, 9.11, 16.11, 23.11, 30.11, 7.12, 14.12, 21.12, 11.01, 18.01, 25.01, 1.02, 8.02.
After completing the course participants will understand the public speaking process and know the rules governing the organization and delivery of informative and persuasive presentations, typical for the knowledge context.
After completing the course the participants will be able to effectively prepare, organize and deliver seminar, conference and grant competition presentations about their own research and other topics of their academic interest.
After completing the course, the participants will demonstrate better communication skills of speaking, listening and comprehension in all context, not only professional.
To receive credit, participants will be required to obtain at least 60% of all points available for oral presentations delivered on Zoom and written tasks placed on the Kampus platform.
