Program Description:
Description
It’s not enough just to care about an issue, you also have to learn how to communicate your passion in ways that inspire others to stand up and work for positive change. Drawing on the work of inspiring global leaders, we will explore the concept and practice of transformational leadership for social and environmental justice. Students will choose an issue to research and write about, working collaboratively to explore various rhetorical approaches to advocating for positive social and/or environmental change. Using TED guru Chris Andersen’s “official TED guide to public speaking” as a roadmap, students will practice writing and speaking in order to communicate their vision in as compelling a manner as possible. Students will come away from this course with a toolkit of skills and tactics for inspiring others, and a portfolio of their own efforts to speak out on issues of social and/or environmental justice. This is a six-week, half-semester class, with two synchronous 90-minute classes per week, running March 29 - May 10.
