Beyond the QEP: Creating a Culture of Excellent Oral Communication

Tuesday, Nov. 10th at 4:30 — Please join us for the third and final talk by Brown Foundation Fellow and Professor of Rhetoric at Furman University, Sean O’Rourke

Beyond the QEP: Creating a Culture of Excellent Oral Communication

Taking its cue from the latest research on successful oral communication programs in liberal arts colleges and programs, this talk attempts to summarize advances envisioned by the Sewanee QEP and the Center for Public Speaking and Listening it creates, assess its potential to improve what it seeks to improve, and look beyond the QEP and its Center to imagine a future that moves from the QEP toward a more robust, multifaceted approach to speech in liberal education. Light snacks provided by Julia’s will be available. Please join us! Sponsored by the QEP initiative (speaking across the curriculum).
