Goal of the practical class
The goal of the practical class is to analyse our own and other people’s non-verbal communication and to raise awareness about it.
Prior to the class attendance, the students should study theoretical background of the practical class.
Students individually come out in front of the group to speak about various daily topics while the rest of the group along with the lecturer study their body language. Students alone choose the topic of their speech (usual topics vary from a description of a typical day to the plot of a recently seen film). After several minutes the speech is interrupted, and the students comment with their lecturer on what they noticed in the body language.
At the end of the class, the students and the lecturer comment together the gained experience. Having assessed the potential benefit from the practical class for their professional and private development, the students and the lecturer critically analyse its successfulness.
