Lecture: The ‘Secrets’ of Efficient Communication. Communicating one’s message is a task that is both exciting and demanding at the same time. In this lecture, Mika Hietanen presents some of the fundamental and timeless qualities of persuasive communication. These qualities can be formulated as principles that are useful for both oral and written communication, and an indispensable help in preparing convincing speeches and texts.
Workshop 1: Rhetoric & Public Speaking. During this workshop, the attendees give and get response on prepared three-minute speeches. The aim is to empower the participants to talk in front of an audience in a successful manner. The focus will be on two aspects: the manner in which the content is presented (relates the preparations), and on the actual delivery. Please note that participation requires that you send in a manuscript that follows the guidelines for this preparatory assignment A. Ideally, your speech relates to an issue central to your own research, or your field. No slides are used.
Worskhop 2: Debate. Here we stage a debate between teams, pro et contra some research related issue. We follow a simplified structure of a European debate competition format. We prepare on-site (no pre-assigment).
The lecture and workshop 1 and 2 are given by Mika Hietanen, Associate Professor in Rhetoric at Uppsala University. His interests draw on Classical insights from antiquity, as well as on modern research, especially on argumentation. LinkedIn-profile https://se.linkedin.com/in/mikahietanen
