This Public Speaking course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.
Public Speaking goes hand in hand with great technology advances! Imagine you are delivering a technology presentation and your audience is riveted by your messages and your style. Wouldn't it be nice to know exactly what your audience is understanding or not understanding about your technology expertise?
The public speaking skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.
This course is for anyone who has to give technology presentations or presentations that contain a large technology element.
