The course covers both the theory of presenting and its practical application.  It includes, for example, looking at common communication problems and how these can be prevented, the writing of manuscripts and other types of preparation, as well as subjects such as presentation and delivery technique, coping with nerves, and the use of visual aids. You will have the opportunity to give a number of different styles of oral presentations.

The seminar teacher is a native English speaker, so all seminar work will be carried out in English (no Swedish necessary for international students).

This course requires campus attendance.  The Workshops and Studio Work are usually held on Thursday mornings and last approximately 3 hours in order to give enough time for discussions and presentations. 

Information regarding the timetable and the course in general will be available on the course Fronter page EN1108 (VT17) in February 2017.
