Workshop Name Pooling Teaching Tips #29 - Fitting oral communication into my papers
About Workshop This is an opportunity for university teachers to share thoughts and experiences about how, and why, they should find space in their crowded curriculum for their students to develop and to practise their oral communication skills. Oral communication is one element of Otago’s graduate attributes and often identified by employers as insufficiently developed in graduates internationally. But students do not necessarily interpret our expectations as opportunities for their learning. And we may ourselves not be adequately prepared to teach and to assess our students’ oral presentation skills. If you are using teaching devices that help students to develop and to practise oral communication skills or have experienced these approaches elsewhere, please do join this conversation.

Learning Outcomes
Participants will discuss how to support students to develop oral communication skills and share some personal and departmental perspectives on the processes involved.

Target Audience
All those who teach in higher education at the university, with a particular focus on those new to teaching at the University of Otago
Who Should Attend University of Otago teachers - new teachers very welcome
