The aim of this course is twofold: to introduce students to critical thinking skills and to provide opportunities for experimentation and practice. By developing a greater understanding of the various ways cognitive information can be processed, students will be able to quickly adapt to the rigors of post-secondary education.
Regardless of their academic goals, university students are expected to prepare and deliver in-class presentations. This course is designed to provide students with practical tools and techniques so that they will be able to create interesting and informative presentations for their peers. In addition, students will explore methods for reducing and/or eliminating anxiety associated with public speaking.
This course will explore various topics associated with leadership, giving students the tools to function more effectively in group situations. By working through a progression of carefully selected activities, students will begin to develop an awareness of their own emerging leadership styles. Activities include self-assessment, reflection, role-plays, and teambuilding tasks. This course will not only equip students with skills that will ensure academic success, but it will also prepare them for success beyond the classroom.
Upon completing this course, students will have a deeper understanding of various aspects of Canadian culture. In addition, students will explore fundamentals of culture theory and see how it can be applied in practical situations. This course will also provide students with vocabulary and information that will ensure maximum participation and enjoyment of all the activities that are included in the Canada Overseas Immersion Program.
The program will run April 8 to May 13 with various teaching times and days.
