ISP Continuing Advanced ESL Workshop 4: How to Deliver a Pitch of New Idea in a Class or for a Research Project (This pairs with CGU’s Big Pitch contest)

Purpose: To facilitate preparation and practice for delivery of a “pitch.” By “pitch”, we are referring to a process in which a student succinctly describes and delivers a new idea in a class or for a research topic. This pairs with The Big Pitch, a 3-minute, campus-wide thesis contest. Even international students who do not plan on entering the contest are welcome to attend to practice delivering ideas to advisors, professors, and classmates.

Points Covered:

What a Pitch Is, and Why We Do It
Identifying the Essence of an Idea and Summarizing It Effectively
Knowing Your Audience
Delivery: Body Language and Elements of Speech
