ONLINE CAMP E -  FULL    I   ONLINE CAMP F - BEGINS OCTOBER 5

DEBATE EDUCATION:  For today's youth, skills in parliamentary debate help to develop critical thinking, advocacy, listening to alternate points of view and speaking well. Each 6 session package develops:

  • parliamentary debate technique

  • skills in case construction

  • skills in refutation and argument re-building

  • skills in organization of thought

  • persuasive, confident speaking

 

 

 

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS:  Online debate workshops are designed in a fun, interactive and student-centred way. Participants develop debate skills via opportunities to work together, share thinking and constructively debate in each session.

 

TEAMWORK:  Online participants co-develop cases, debate as a team and receive feedback together; often as a side - pointing out strengths of argumentation and delivery.  Each online session consists of a workshop, case construction time and a practice debate round.

 

SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT:  Our online program is a supportive place, with lots of encouragement available for those who are trying new things.  Participants are coached to honour what is being said by their opponents and welcome the efforts of others, even in competition.   

 

 

ABILITY LEVELS: All online debate partnerships and speakers opposite are grouped at an experience level that ensures the right level of challenge:   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Online level groups are similar to all Debate Camps and open to  adjustment post registration to ensure program comfort and fit.
