Lecturing is a half course that will introduce you to basic skills and techniques of communicating successfully to students. In particular you will learn about explaining complex ideas, grabbing and holding attention, phrasing, communicating nonverbally, and generating emotional response.

Throughout the course, you will have opportunities to practice using the skills and concepts in active-learning lessons and participant-led microteaching sessions. You will also be able to give and receive feedback. By experiencing a variety of lecturing and presentation techniques in the student role, reading about them, and practicing some of them, you will be in a better position to evaluate these techniques for incorporation into your own lecturing, and how they can be adapted to suit your personal teaching style and disciplinary needs.
