The Performance Focus courses teach presentation and visual literacy skills, aiming to teach students how to effectively communicate information through scripted presentations, spontaneous speech, and visual material. Students will prepare and deliver presentations (either individually or in groups) on topics relevant to the field of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals are:
- No poverty
- Zero hunger
- Good health and well-being
- Quality education
- Gender equality
- Clean water and sanitation
- Affordable and clean energy
- Decent work and economic growth
- Industry, innovation, and infrastructure
- Reduced inequalities
- Sustainable cities and communities
- Responsible consumption and production
- Climate action
- Life below water
- Life on land
- Peace, justice, and strong institutions
- Partnerships for the goals
This course focuses on output: how students communicate information in English.
This involves extensive practice in script writing and the use of voice, eye contact, gestures, and other body language. Students will also make use of audio-visual and computer resources, including presentation software such as Microsoft PowerPoint (or similar software). They may also learn how to create poster presentations (optional).
As with the companion course Reading Focus for SDGs, presentations in the course will be on themes relevant to SDGs, and the course will also include SDG-themed activities and projects which extend over several weeks.
By the end of the course, all students will have had extensive practice in script writing and giving presentations. They will have learnt how to plan and present scripted oral presentations, including PowerPoint-style slideshows with clear, concise, and engaging use of text and graphics. When giving their presentations, they will be able to skillfully and effectively use techniques involving voice, eye contact, gestures, and body language.
They will also have experience presenting clearly and convincingly on SDG-related themes.
