|This course is designed to improve students academic presentation skills. It incorporates students presentations of academic projects that they have already started and plan to present in other classes. These presentations are designed for students to use logical thinking skills to
prioritize what information to present, how to present it, and how to answer audience questions. During these presentations, non-presenting students will be asked to evaluate the presenters. This achieves two goals: 1) for the presenters to get feedback from a variety of points of views; and
2) for students to consider which presentation styles they enjoy and what effective things they can incorporate into their own presentations.
