Our Introduction to Critical Discussion course develops our students’ skills in casual conversations and competitive dialogues. Through various debate-style exercises, this program engages the students in the argumentative side of communication. In this course, our instructors provide topics for the students and act as judges for the debates. The instructors then deliver feedback in order to develop the students’ persuasive capabilities. In the real world, people often have their ideas and opinions put under scrutiny. This course refines our students’ argumentation skills through logic and reasoning, giving power to their words.
