Below I embed speeches that I delivered as partial requirements for my Communication Practicum residency course at Gonzaga University for my MA in Communication and Leadership Studies. I drafted eight speeches and chose these two for their relevance and potential benefit to my audience. Each video includes feedback from my professor, Dr. Michael Hazel (Faculty), and peers.
Speech 1: How to Choose a Thesis Topic
Speech 2: How to Use the Career Interview Method
Speech 1: Goals included teaching my audience how to choose a thesis topic and improving projection, diction, and learning to speak in love and not fear, or being cognizant of my audience.
Speech 2: Goals included persuading my audience of the relevance of using career interviews to approach change and speaking with a natural, empathetic, and conversational style.
Special thanks to my colleagues and husband for their support and patience on this trip and course. I admire the dedication, effort, and quality work each person has invested in their work in this program. Visit here for more information about my experiences in this course.
Thanks for watching!Dena
