Persuasive Communication: Narrative, Evidence, and Impact

Semester: 

N/A

Offered: 

2021

Without clear, concise, and persuasive communication, even the best laid plans won’t have the intended impact. Communication skills are vital. Understanding how to impact people and policies enables you to make the changes you want to see in the world.

Persuasive Communication: Narrative, Evidence, and Impact is designed to help you build a critical set of skills in writing, speaking, and presenting by providing a dynamic forum to learn, practice, and receive feedback on these essential skills. Led by Faculty Chair Lauren Brodsky, this program will provide you an opportunity to gain a better understanding of effective communication, as well as reflect on the role of communication in the larger policy landscape—what’s the most strategic way to approach a situation, and how can communications play a role in achieving your goals?

The program will take place over the course of 3 weeks from Monday, May 10 - Wednesday, May 26, 2021. Live sessions will take place every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (exception: no class on Friday, May 28) from approximately 9:00 AM ET – 12:30 PM ET. The total estimated time commitment is 12 hours per week.
