Educational Philosophy: Learning is most effective when students reference the concepts, principles and conclusions to their own experience. By taking an active role as a student, meaningful learning occurs. Because each person employs different styles of learning, various methods of instruction are necessary to encourage the active investigation of a subject.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The core assessment for CA103-Public Speaking will be a Final Speech. This speech be a type of speech (persuasive or informative, forexample) already given by the student during the semester. For example, if a student has given informative, persuasive, and demonstration speeches during the semester, he must select one of those types of speeches to give for the final. The rationale is that a student increases his mastery of a type of speaking by giving that type of speech twice. The length of the speech will be determined by the instructor, and the topic by the instructor and/or the student.
