This unit addresses the communication needs of students, current and intending professionals required to speak in presentation contexts. Participants will experience specific vocal and physical skills in the presentation of dynamic and highly focused material and tasks. Various delivery techniques and strategies enable participants to reach an identified or intended audience with impact and purpose. How to address performance anxiety and transfer these skills to professional contexts is part of the study profile of this unit. The skills-based and experiential learning approach supports and provides the confidence necessary to present in front of an audience to facilitate professional development.
