Educational formula

The first part of the conference is devoted to the development of the oral communication skills needed in the work environment. Each participant makes an oral presentation of a training course or professional experience, on the basis of a questionnaire, before answering questions asked by the class/group.

In the second part of the class, discussions will focus on current issues related to the students’ masters program.   Topics are usually introduced in the form of thematic projects to be prepared at home (to be read, listened to, viewed on Moodle). Summaries of and debates on these documents can take various forms, with students working in groups on different tasks and role-playing.
