The development of public presentation skills in a formal environment is integral to success in professional life. Students are taught to express ideas, knowledge and passion in a formal setting this unit that stacks on top of the FASS units on presentation skills to create a 6 cp set if required. The focus of this unit is the development of the skills, personal style and confidence to present authoritative content, on a topic that the student has passion for, or special knowledge of. Developing physical skills, an ability to curate their material and the use of appropriate visual technologies leads to superior presentations. Students develop a unique and individual style of presenting, cognizant of their own physicality, verbal skills and talents. Building on skills established in the 0cp course, the 2 cp version further extends creative strategies for presenting in public via the preparation of a mini-ted talk.
