So What do you Think? Strategies for Speaking & Sharing

Participating, asking questions, discussing, and giving and receiving feedback: these skills are so important to your success as an OCAD U student and as a future professional but are not often taught. Everyone can have an opinion, but it takes practice to learn how to transform those thoughts into questions and discussion points. Avoid that awkward silence by finding ways to engage more and to share your unique stories and points of view. This is an informal workshop. We encourage you to stay for the whole thing, but you may arrive late or leave before the end if you need to. Facilitated by Phoebe Wang, ELL Writing & Learning Consultant.

  • Improve your English communication skills
  • All year levels, programs, and students welcome
  • Support for ELL students (English Language Learners)

You've Got 3 Minutes: Presenting with Purpose

Classic, utilitarian, structured, edgy, eclectic - how would you describe your style? This workshop will help you to describe your influences and aesthetics using descriptive visual language and to communicate your creative choices with clear and purposeful intent. Students who are non-native English speakers can be better prepared for presentations, class discussions, and responding to feedback. This interactive workshop will use lots of examples and activities that can benefit all students. This is an informal workshop. We encourage you to stay for the whole thing, but you may arrive late or leave before the end if you need to. Facilitated by Phoebe Wang, ELL Writing & Learning Consultant.
