Welcome to the Communication Skills course. Our objective during this course is not to teach you how to communicate with others, because you were born as a communicator. However, the topics and issues to be discussed during the course will help you (and us) fine tune and lay some scientific foundation underneath your skills of communication in the academic environment, in the street and in the workplace, both in oral and written formats.
Lectures are discussions are not everything. You need to practice those skills the right way repeatedly so you can be characterize as a good communicator overall.
