There are two instructors; Associate Professor Meldrum and Ms. Kaz. teaching Tuesdays and Thursdays, respectively. Class time will be devoted to practicing effective delivery skills: posture, eye contact, gestures, voice inflection and the use of note cards. Furthermore, we will also focus on presentation structure and how to create and explain visuals. You will study with other students of the similar skill level in a small class setting. Students are encouraged to choose a topic from their current research for their final presentation.
The main objective of this course is to provide students with the opportunity to practice and polish their presentation skills in English.
The detail of this course can be found at the ACLS's website (http://www.acls.titech.ac.jp/).
