Lehrveranstaltungen

Language, Culture and Communication. Englisch ab B2.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Paul Martin Lauer

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 14:15 - 17:45 | 12.10.2020 - 29.01.2021 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: In this seminar you (alone or together with a partner) will have the opportunity to explore how travel can be meaningful culturally. This understanding should be primarily based on your own and others' experiences of culture. However we will read about and discuss several theories of culture and how they might influence our experiences. The project is to design a journey or tour in another culture so that its participants can experience that culture meaningfully. The results of your project should be presented in the form you deem appropriate (website, blog, podcast etc.). We will also focus on learning how to do qualitative interviewing.

Persuasive Presentations: The Power of Storytelling. Englisch ab B2.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Paul Martin Lauer

Termin:
wöchentlich | Dienstag | 14:15 - 17:45 | 12.10.2020 - 30.11.2020 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: This 7-week course will take place between October 13 and November 24. This class is explicitly designed for students of all majors interested in communication in a professional context. In this class you will develop your own proposal and then deliver it as a 7-minuten presentation. In a portfolio you will document your preparation for the presentation and in a brief reflective essay what you have learned in giving the presentation. In addition to improving your written and oral communicative competencies in English, you will have an opportunity to rethink what persuasive communication means and – step by step – craft your own proposal over the course of seven weeks. We will look at rhetorical concepts dating back to Aristotle – such as the rhetorical triad of ethos, pathos, and logos – in order to help understand the importance of context in persuasion and what means you have to reach your goals. We will also look at how storytelling is used in professional organizations to engage and influence audiences.

The Art of Debate: The Rhetoric of Disagreement. Englisch B2.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Paul Martin Lauer

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 14:15 - 17:45 | 12.10.2020 - 29.01.2021 | Online-Veranstaltung

Inhalt: In this seminar you will have the opportunity to develop the rhetorical and linguistic skills needed for critical and argumentative reasoning. Debating is not about scoring points and "smashing" your opponents with irrefutable arguments. Instead, I hope we are all interested in learning how to debate as a means to find insight into issues of deep importance to us. It is, if you will, an opportunity to leave your “bubble” and question your most deeply held beliefs. Substantial research and preparation will be involved in preparing your final debate.

Casual Conversation about Serious Topics. ab B2.2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Paul Martin Lauer

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 12:15 - 13:45 | 12.10.2020 - 24.11.2020 | Online-Veranstaltung | This course is only 7 weeks long

Inhalt: “So, what are you studying?” “So, what are you planning on doing when you graduate?” Or even, “So, what do you think about the election?” Whether in a university or in a work setting, talking about yourself and your interests is an important skill. You’ll choose the topics. And then after short readings for language input you’ll have a chance to converse in small groups of two, three or four.
