•本講座の目的およびねらい
This class will provide advanced discussion of complex topics relevant to international academic presentations. In particular, we will look at cultural and aesthetic issues that impact how your presentation will be received. Students are required to become aware of cultural difference and how to best negotiate these differences. Students will explore subtle verbal and visual issues that impact how people receive what they are saying. They will create written documents that help plan for and negotiate cultural differences and presentation issues. To achieve these goals we will use a variety of written, visual, and spoken material to improve presentation skills to enable students to present well in a global context.
