Oral Presentation Skills

Director of Learning Resources Yonna McShane says:

“Effective public speaking is not just a practical skill; it is also one of the oldest of the liberal arts disciplines, extending back to Plato and Aristotle.  It encompasses studying classical rhetoric, the research and arrangement of ideas, style and memorization, and oral delivery of those ideas.  Learning how to improve your public speaking skills involves learning how to organize presentations including learning how to select content, structure a presentation from beginning to end, and connect with the audience, in addition to honing your public speaking skills.”
