Assisting Students in Preparing Effective Arts & Humanities Presentations

A faculty development workshop sponsored by the Institute for Writing and Rhetoric, led by Darlene Drummond.

Monday, April 23, 2018
DCAL, Room 102 Baker Library
Intended Audience(s): Faculty, Postdoc, Staff
Categories: Workshops & Training
Registration required.

We will focus on classroom presentations as one type of presentational speaking. Speaking assignments in arts and humanities courses often rely on the student's analysis and interpretation of a particular idea, event, person, or thing. We will discuss how we can assist students in preparing the most effective informative talks of description and analysis in which they explain the relevancy of a historical or contemporary person or event; genre or school of philosophical thought; or a piece of literature, music, or art. We will also discuss how to assist students in leading classroom discussions based on a question they researched. Tip sheets, rubrics and basic guideline sheets that can be easily adapted to any course will be provided. Lunch will be served.
