Leerdoelen Students will be able to:
• Use interdisciplinary knowledge and skills to solve and/or meaningfully impact a broader societal issue.
• Collaborate and operate in an interdisciplinary project team.
• Communicate with clients on a professional level and in a professional context.
• Create, present, and defend results of the project to experts.
• Reflect on their role in project team and their project’s impact on society/clients.
Omschrijving The Rhetoric Lab is the project-based capstone of the Rhetorics Minor in which you employ the rhetorical skills that you acquired in Secrets of Rhetoric and your specialization course in an interdisciplinary team and a project of your own choosing. Under the supervision of mentors and instructors, you will work on a rhetorical problem or challenge for an organization, client, stakeholder or cause in or outside the university.
The first part of the course focuses on team-building and setting the goals of the project. Together you will decide what problem you want to work and identify the knowledge, skills, and material you need to complete the project. Next, you will consult with the client/organization/stakeholder, execute your project and, at the end, present your suggested course of action and how this will impact society.
At the end of this course, you will be able to employ your rhetorical skills in different context to make a meaningful impact in society.
