This seminar series is an opportunity to exercise and perfect your debate skills. Think of these as verbal training classes where you can practice rhetorical tools and strategies relevant to everyday situations, simultaneously becoming a more effective communicator and leader.
Seminars will start with a brief lecture on one or several debate fundamentals from our esteemed instructor.
All 12 attendees are divided into two groups. Each group receives a motion (e.g. Money can buy happiness), and are allocated a period of time to develop arguments for and against the motion.
Each person will deliver a timed argument, with subsequent critique and analysis from the instructor.
You should walk away from every seminar with new tools, strategies, and confidence immediately applicable your everyday life!
We welcome and encourage anyone to try out for our upcoming debates! Have a friend you'd like to partner with? Try out as a team! Leave us a 1-2 minute voicemail (3-4 minutes for teams) expressing your argument for or against an upcoming motion. Debaters will be chosen several weeks in advance.
