Persuasive Communication for Technology Professionals

July 9-13, 2018


Effective communication abilities are often among the very top desired skills that employers look for and value. How have our communication practices and needs changed in the digital age? This course focuses on four specific areas: public speaking, critical thinking, visual persuasion, and audience adaptation. The program will address each of these areas in a three-step process: First, we will identify the specific skills a successful advocate requires. Second, we will answer the question, ?What specific challenges has the advent of the digital age brought about?? Third, we will engage in workshop activities that allow program participants to put into practice the principles we have discussed.
