【授業の概要と目的(何を学ぶか) / Outline and objectives】
Being able to take command of a room and speak confidently in front of other people is a vital skill, but one many people have difficulty with. The primary aim of this course is to build confidence and competence in public speaking, with the main focus on the preparation and delivery of two kinds of speech: informative and persuasive. This course will not only have relevance in an academic sense, but the skills learned can also be applied in both business and social settings.

•Competency in identifying and analysing basic communication theory
•The ability to put this theory into practice
•Confidence in presentation and public speaking on a variety of topics
•Key skills in both verbal and non-verbal aspects of public speaking
•The ability to be an active listener and ask meaningful questions.

Although there is some theoretical analysis, Presentation and Public Speaking is primarily a practical, skills-based course, with students producing meaningful class content. Submission of assignments and feedback will either be in-person or via the Learning Management System. Students will prepare and deliver speeches and learn essential skills along the way: how to select, organize and use materials to support an idea, delivery techniques, and how to effectively utilise multimedia tools in presentations.

【学生の意見等からの気づき / Changes following student comments】
Some students were mistaken in thinking that the Presentation and Public Speaking course had two parts, but that is incorrect. The "Standard" and "Advanced" levels have the same course content and students can only take this course once. Please see the "Others" section for more details.

【学生が準備すべき機器他 / Equipment student needs to prepare】
A laptop will be required in many sessions. If access to a laptop computer is difficult, please inform the instructor.

【その他の重要事項 / Others】
This course has two levels, "Standard" and "Advanced." This is not a two-part course: the two levels are designed to separate students based on English proficiency, so the instructors can tailor the content for different skill levels. Think carefully about which level is right for you before selecting the course. For the Advanced level course, students are expected to meet or exceed one of the following scores: TOEFL ITP 550, TOEFL iBT 80, IELTS 6.5 or IB Diploma (English as Language A).
