|授業の概要||Students will learn basic principles and methods of making effective presentations in English.
The skills will be useful for research presentation and getting a better understanding of how to make better research papers. This will provide practice in English and boost confidence for future conferences.
This course is the continuation of the spring semester and looks at how to present someone else's research and how to analyze and write an abstract.
|学修の目的||The central aim of this course is to improve students’ presentation skills and to help students understand and create their own academic presentation based on a thorough understanding of 1) observations/problems 2) research questions/objectives, and 3) thesis statements/hypotheses. We will then use this basic framework to move to more advanced topics. Students will dissect and understand a work of their choosing as a basis for their presentation. Students will also learn how to write a proposal/abstract for their work. Students will present twice during the semester using the skills learned throughout the course. As necessary, most classes will contain a lecture dealing with specific aspects of presentation skills. Class activities and materials will be oriented around pair and small group work.|
|学修の到達目標||Students will develop academic English presentation skills by turning a research paper into a presentation. They will also make an abstract and use this as a tool to help them present.|
