This will be an introductory training session where you will be introduced to public speaking and the debating format known as “British Parliamentary Style” (BP). We will have a simple exercise for public speaking as well as a debate! It will suit both complete beginners as well as people who already feel comfortable speaking in public.
For all new debaters (bring paper and pen!!), we will have three goals for this session:
1. Learn five specific piece of advice for coping or getting over nervousness
2. Understand the SExIER-argument model for building up an argument
3. Understand the basics of the BP format and debate using it
For people who have attended before there’ll be training in some more advanced skills in a separate room.
The event is free and open for everyone. We will be starting out in the area on the right-hand side after entering through the main door.
After the event, we’ll be going to the AF-borgen rooftop for a smaller rooftop party/hang-out with music and perhaps som games. Please bring your own drinks (BYOB). For those who want to, it will be possible to use our office-kitchen (we’ll provide pasta). We’ll stay inside the castle if the weather is bad 🙂
