I think this was a good way of getting their attention. For the conclusion of my speech, I used one of the quotes that I had found, because the quote could make people think about the meaning. Then I concluded my speech with a little quote about the new approach of the self-driving
Speaking with confidence makes people assume you do know what you are talking about. The many new skills I gained when taking this course was to shorten a whole outline of what you plan to talk about and having to minimize into a specific time range. The most helpful part about having a time requirement when delivering a speech is to say your important information, state your main points and close it off. It also makes the presenter not wander off and say irrelevant information. The utilization of ethos, pathos, and logos to persuade was one of the many skills I gained this quarter.
In my listening test I got the results revealing that I listen very well, I am told that I know how to keep to myself and I always considerate of the other person, and as I try to be! My cognitive complexity score wasn 't so great, it shows that I need more work on my perception skills, which I was surprised about because I get distracted easily and always come up with situations in my head, but on this assessment I didn 't. Also on my ethical test I believe that it is unethical in my views, but i also am aware that others have different views. Overall I know how I communicate but I’m also unaware of some parts of my communication. On my self-awareness test I knew how i communicate, and the test showed that too!
After the presentation we discussed what went well and what didn’t and there was a shared consensus that most of it went well but at some parts we could have elaborated on. Personally, while presenting I made a conscious effort to show open body language and talk clearly. This is because research has found that 55% of human communication is non-verbal, (Tandon, 2015:2) therefore, body language plays a large role in an effective presentation. I do not have much experience presenting to large groups so I was fairly uncomfortable and it did not come very naturally to me. Nevertheless, it is a useful skill to have for the future and as one of my first attempts I think it went as well as could be
Individuality is one of my favorite words, I love to think on the individuality that each person has, so if you ever find me staring at you, its probobly because im figuring your´s out. Writing about this helped me learn multiple stuff, I think that this bunch of information I just learned today may someday help me in the future. When I reread this essay and I see all the information Ive written down it honestly makes me think of how important it is to respect yourself, Ive noticed this when I talked about how important it is to be different. I undoubtelly enjoyed reading Harrison Bergeron, because it woken up my perspectives on how good individuality can be, and that it 's okey to be
• I have grown tremendously as a communicator, especially in facework and conflict situations. Before this course, I loved to argue and I always felt the need to be right. I was the type of person who didn’t think before speaking and would say whatever I pleased. After this course, I have learned to communicate in a collaborative way, not threaten the face of others by considering what to say, and realized conflict is not necessarily always bad because you can learn from it and use it for the next conflict you encounter. • The factors that were most influential in these changes were realizing the way I communicate will affect my identity and those around me, we make positive communities through constructive communication, and I needed to be face conscious and person centered.
Also, I gained many skills from the assignment which will be applicable academically. As an example, I learned to think critically, to build arguments, to find and use the proper sources for research, and to narrow the topic in order to deepen to it. I became able to not to be bias and to look at the case from the rational side. In addition, I understood the significance of accurate referencing and citing as I was mostly criticized on that in my feedback. I realize that the previous skills and knowledge will be benefitting me in my future courses.
I only read through my speech one, and that is in my head, not out loud. I know it is bad to say that, but it works for me. I tend to overthink things way too much, so, when I start overthinking, my nerves start kicking in and my speech turns into a mess. Another way how I improved on speaking publicly is simply telling the story instead of annunciating it. When
