Oral Communication: Basics | 2024

Lead Faculty
Yaron Brook


Ayn Rand was interested in conveying her ideas to new audiences; we at ARI are too. More widely, learning to effectively communicate your ideas to new audiences is an important skill to learn. This course focuses on some of the principles and practice of effective oral communication. We consider some of the principles of proper communication from an Objectivist perspective and then students practice the skills they are learning by giving short talks on intellectual topics, followed by extensive instructor feedback.

Prerequisites: To enroll in this course students must have completed “Introduction to Writing”.
