The Public Speaking Basics course is a series of lectures designed to introduce listeners to the fundamentals of public speaking. Like every other skill, public speaking must be practiced in order to be mastered. This course is designed to remove the “I have it or I don’t” concept that traditionally surrounds public speaking. We will cover topics ranging from how to properly use visual aids to overcoming stage fright, to movement, and more. Though the classes will be conducted online, the lessons are designed to be interactive. Student participation is desired, and all questions are welcomed.
