Practically Speaking is a limited seven-week group experience for 14 graduate students to enhance their impromptu public speaking skills and develop lifelong communication tools for their professional and academic life.
Impromptu speaking is speaking with no preparation for a short time (about 1- to 3-minutes). Impromptu speaking is different from giving prepared speeches, where you write and practice a speech before giving it. Please note we will not be giving or writing any prepared (or long) speeches. This group will work on developing the skills needed to speak spontaneously in an organized and compelling way. We will practice speech structure, audience awareness, vocal variety, and body language.
- Weekly every Monday from September 28th to November 9th
