ENGL109N : Public Speaking

Public Speaking is designed to prepare students to assume active participation in those phases of industrial and social life requiring effective oral communication. Through practical exercises, students will learn the skills associated with professional speaking. Emphasis will be placed on planning and organization, as well as the importance of the audience. Since writing is often the basis for many public speaking activities, some written assignments are also required. In addition, students will use visual software, such as PowerPoint, in some presentations. Students taking an online version of ENGL109N must have a webcam and microphone or phone camera with internet connection for the required presentations in this course (Formerly Oral Communication).
