Academic Communications series

Whether participating in group meetings, teaching classes or presenting at conferences, there are times when we all have to speak in public.  Each hands-on workshop focuses on a different aspect of public speaking.  Participants will practice and receive feedback on short presentations. 

Please contact the English Language Program for further information about their upcoming events.
