Inhalt: Dieses Semester wird die Veranstaltung als E-Learning Format angeboten, d.h. als Mischung aus Einzel- bzw. Gruppenbetreuung und selbstgesteuertem Lernen. In this seminar you will have the opportunity to explore how culture shapes perception and behavior. We will critically examine a theory of intercultural communication to determine its usefulness and limitations before learning how to do qualitative research. The final project involves interviewing international students at the Leuphana and then interpreting their experiences here in Germany. We will also explore issues such as the impact of tourism on local communities or hidden bias and unconscious discrimination. A secondary goal of the course is to give you an opportunity to improve your spoken and written language skills.

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

Dozent/in: Paul Martin Lauer

Termin:
wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 10:15 - 13:45 | 06.04.2020 - 10.07.2020 | C 6.316

Inhalt: Dieses Semester wird die Veranstaltung als E-Learning Format angeboten, d.h. als Mischung aus Einzel- bzw. Gruppenbetreuung und selbstgesteuertem Lernen. This class was formerly listed as "Crafting and Presenting Professional Proposals" and 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 communicate it in a presentation and in written form. 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 the semester into the perfect form. 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.

Flash Debating. Englisch ab B2 (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Paul Martin Lauer

Termin:
wöchentlich | Dienstag | 14:15 - 15:45 | 06.04.2020 - 10.07.2020 | C 12.015

Inhalt: Dieses Semester wird die Veranstaltung als E-Learning Format angeboten, d.h. als Mischung aus Einzel- bzw. Gruppenbetreuung und selbstgesteuertem Lernen. Flash debating or speed debating is about discussing topics—whether controversial, profound, or even silly—with a minimum of preparation and to maximum effect. You’ll learn how to make an argument, research your topic and then debate: argument, counter-argument, and draw a conclusion. Practice organizing your thoughts, presenting them powerfully, and defending your viewpoint. In the end you’ll not only have practiced and developed a key skill, you may have learned to question some of your deepest convictions.
