This course enables PhD students* who are engaged in research-related speaking contexts as a part of their dissertation-writing process to formally present their research to a wide variety of discipline-specific and non-specialist audiences.
Participants explore common spoken genres used in academic and professional contexts such as conference presentations, poster sessions, job interviews, and the dissertation defense. They then practice these spoken genres in frequent presentations which are videotaped for review. Each participant receives extensive peer and instructor feedback and engages in regular self-evaluation as well. Integral to the course are regular one-on-one consultations with the instructor.
*Note: This course is also appropriate for Master’s students who have completed ELI 534 and/or ELI 544.
