Activating the Audience: Teaching Speaking Skills Online

Wednesday, February 10 | 10 – 11 a.m. | Zoom

Speaking skills are considered essential in both university and the workplace, yet it is widely known that students are anxious about, and perform poorly in, oral settings. Oral skills tend to receive little classroom attention—often due to logistical challenges (large class sizes) or pedagogical ones (few resources for teaching them). These challenges are amplified in the remote classroom when many of us struggle to facilitate student engagement and interaction. At the same time, the online context provides unique learning opportunities for students to gain skills and confidence in classroom speaking (in both formal or informal contexts).
