【Course Objectives】

The primary goal of this once-a-week course is to introduce students to campus resources, software, and self-management skills that will help them succeed as autonomous learners. The secondary goal of this course is for students to practice genres of academic presentations (personal; compare & contrast; research).

Students will use straightforward cloud-based software to complete assignments based on academic exercises. The outcome of this course will be a portfolio of the student’s work that can be used as a reference for their future coursework.

【Course Contents】

The main focus of the class is on developing academic presentation skills. Each week there will be a brief teacher lecture outlining the tasks of the day. Following this, students will work individually or in small groups to complete exercises that practice academic skills, such as organizing data, designing slides, researching sources, and paraphrasing information.

Homework will consist of (1) individual reflections on academic skills, (2) presentation plans and (3) draft presentations. Lastly, (4) a final presentation will use a structure and topic of the student's choosing, and must adhere to academic research presentation conventions.
