Blended Learning: Public Speaking (Communication)

  1. Tuesday, March 28th, 20172:30pm - 4:00pm

Speeches, public speaking, and presentations are often an important part of the work that we do.  This learning experience will offer a review of public speaking fundamentals and an opportunity to practice what you learn.  Register for this event to gain experience and practice in a safe, learning environment.

This workshop blends online learning offered by Lynda.com and workshop practice with live feedback.

Attendees will watch Public Speaking Fundamentals on Lynda.com (available to all Wake Forest University faculty, staff, and students).  If you have already completed this Lynda course, you do not need to do so again.

On March 28th, each attendee will offer a short speech.  Attendees are asked to bring three items that describe their past, present, and future and to speak on them for a total of 3-4 minutes.  

Speech feedback will be given by WFU Staff Member and University of North Carolina- Greensboro Communications Faculty Member, Elizabeth Dam-Regier and by others in attendance.
