Dozent/in: Maryann Henck

Termin:
wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 14:15 - 17:45 | 06.04.2020 - 10.07.2020 | C 5.311

Inhalt: Dieses Semester wird die Veranstaltung als E-Learning Format angeboten, d.h. als Mischung aus Einzel- bzw. Gruppenbetreuung und selbstgesteuertem Lernen. Are you natural talent when it comes to creativity or are you still waiting to find the right 'source' - or should I say 'course' of inspiration? Are your ready to meander along the blurry borders between fact and fiction in order to tell a story even if it's a lie? And finally, do you have a way with words or are they still having their way with you? Then welcome to the world of creative thought and fiction: A Way with Words, Away with Words. In this seminar, you will encounter a variety of creative writing methods in generative workshops (e.g. catalytic creativity exercises for plotlines and character development) as well as responsive workshops (e.g. peer-editing and evaluation methods for constructive criticism). Beginning with a variety of short fiction (twiction, drabbles, vignettes, flash fiction, short stories) and then proceeding to the novel, we will examine and discuss these various forms of prose as well as experiment with exercises in style and literary techniques. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to acquire vocabulary enrichment techniques, develop a feeling for nuances in language (connotations, register), and effectively employ stylistic devices. Finally, you will learn to develop and refine a personal literary style.

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.
