Moderated by: Suzanne Lane, PhD, Director Writing, Rhetoric, and Professional Communication, MIT

By learning the stages of developing, structuring, rehearsing, and delivering presentations, students can become comfortable with a live audience, and use the process of composing for a real audience as a tool to develop their thinking. This workshop will help instructors think through their goals for oral assignments, so that they can scaffold the steps involved in developing presentations and speeches. Workshop participants will be able to work on (re)designing assignments for their current or future courses by developing (i) a deeper understanding of fundamental oral communication concepts, (ii) strategies to integrate oral communication assignments into a class, and (iii) techniques and tools to provide feedback on student presentations. Participants should have a particular course and assignment[s] in mind to work on during the workshop.

Participation in this workshop is limited to registered participants only. All registered participants are required to attend the entire workshop.

Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm and refreshments will be available in the afternoon. If you have any specific dietary needs, please do let us know.

Printouts of presentation slides are available upon request.
