September 21, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm EDT
Program Partner: GCAC
GPS Credits: 4 in Communication Skills
Dates: September 21 to October 5th
This course is designed for professional Master’s students who want to be more effective speakers in their professional contexts. During the course we will consider the following topics: strategies for managing nerves, for handling difficult questions, and for designing effective slides, designing presentations for a range of audiences, decoding cultural assumptions in multicultural, multidisciplinary teams, and preparing for job interviews. Unlike GCAC’s other sections of Oral Presentation Skills, which focus largely on preparing lengthy research presentations for thesis defences and conference presentations, this section of the course will focus on short presentations of various types that will be chosen to reflect the professional contexts of the students in the course.
Course duration: 5 weeks with an optional tutorial in the sixth week.
Subject to attendance and work submission requirements, this course may be used for credit in the School of Graduate Studies’ Graduate Professional Skills program.
