ECL298 – Overcoming Public Speaking Anxiety and Improving Prepesentation Skills

Overcoming Public Speaking Anxiety and Improving Presentations

Spring 2012

ECL 298 CRN 70188

2124 Wickson Hall

Tuesdays from 3:10-5:00 pm

GRAD STUDENTS & POSTDOCS

Want to improve your presentation materials?

Nervous before giving a class lecture?

Worried about facing your TA section?

Anxious before presenting at a meeting or professional conference?

Public speaking is a pervasive requirement for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars; we are asked to present our research at professional conferences and meetings and to lecture to undergraduate students. These requirements for public speaking are common to graduate students in every field of study and there is a lack of preparation and training at UC Davis to help graduate students meet those requirements successfully.

ECL 298 will be offered spring quarter 2012 to address this need. The overall goal of this course is to help graduate students and postdoctoral scholars prepare and deliver excellent presentations.

This class will address a variety of topics including: exploring the roots of public speaking anxiety, learning how to manage speech anxiety, presentation organization, effective use of powerpoint, and how to speak to different audiences.

Postdocs are welcome to audit this course with instructor approval.  Please contact the instructors, Lydia Beaudrot (lhbeaudrot@ucdavis.edu) or Erin Hendel (eehendel@ucdavis.edu) with any questions.
