Today, students at the American University of Cairo, Egypt, and students at Stanford University, are meeting through virtual digital classrooms to discuss their ideas on speeches by Global Leaders:
- Paul Farmer
- Al Gore
- President Obama
- Queen Rania
- Rockstar Bono
For the collaborative activity, the students are forming international advisory teams to develop a Proposal for Leadership
Teams! Please post your collaborative work as a comment response to this blog. Let us know (specifically):
- Which leader’s speech did you discuss – what did you learn about diverse cultural viewpoints on this speech or on the communication strategies the leader used?
- What problem did your team identify as needing a solution? Why is this problem significant?
- How does your team propose to offer a solution? How might your proposed solution address the rhetorical situation of diverse audiences?
Thank you! Please be sure to list all your names and also add anything you would like to share about this process of working together across the globe!
