Cíle předmětu
This is a blended-learning course intended for students and academic professionals who want to become acquainted with the basic principles of the art and science of public speaking in English language. The class meets once a week for two hours to undertake diverse activities with the aim to learn about creating and delivering effective talks. The course materials present useful guidelines and generally accepted criteria on how to conduct an audience analysis, how to develop content and structure it for maximum impact, how to create and effectively use visual aids that support your ideas, how to handle tough questions and, of course, it suggests which critical mistakes and common traps to avoid. Presentations are practiced in contact lessons while the distance learning component is mediated through discussion forum and wiki activities within the IS MU and/or Moodle. We hope that you will enjoy this course and discover that public speaking is considerably more exciting, enjoyable and encouraging experience that you thought beforehand.
