It’s a lively and informative workshop for international graduate and professional students who want to learn more about communication skills—in and out of the classroom. From understanding cultural differences and tips for effective communication to presentation skills, this workshop will address common situations international graduate students face in workplace and academic settings. The leading presenter, Monica Cortes-Viharo, is an actor and PhD student in the UW School of Drama. She has a professional background teaching speaking skills with English-as-Second-Language students. Free refreshments will be provided! It’s a collaboration among Core Programs in the Graduate School, GPSS, and FIUTS.
