University of Washington is offering an online course called "Introduction to Public Speaking". This 10-week-long course will begin from 31st March, 2014.
About the Course:
Unlike many oral communication courses and textbooks, this class spends a fair bit of time working through the unique traits of oral versus written communication in order to help students prepare speeches that are easier to deliver orally and understand aurally. The class's focus on understanding the key parts of an argument and drafting clear and concise arguments translates directly to other academic assignments. In service of this goal, we will study the principles of argumentation and arrangement; critically examine our own speeches and the speeches of others. By becoming a student of public speaking, you join a long history of rhetorical study dating back to ancient Greece.
Matt McGarrity will be the course instructor.
The course will have a workload of 3-5 hours of work / week.
It will be taught in English and subtitles will be available in English.
