In this course, we will improve oral communication competency through both informal discussions and formal academic-style presentations. Discussions and presentations will mainly focus on describing health-related topics using easy, non-technical terminology.
Students will be able to…
Class participation: 15%
Weekly homework: 15%
Mid term exam: 25%
Final exam: 30%
Attendance is required. Attendance is evaluated on a 6-point scale. Points are given when students actively participate in class and subtracted when students are late, sleep or do things not related to the class activity. All students must tap in by 9:10 to receive any attendance points. Six absences is automatic failure of the class.
Students are expected to prepare for poster and oral presentations outside of class time. It is recommended to have regular access to some form of portable electronic device (e.g., tablet, notebook PC) for use in- and outside the class.
