PROGRAM
OVERVIEW

 

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.  Debate Camp has been engaged in this since 2002 - and will now offer our program to small groups of online participants

• parliamentary debate technique                         

• skills in organization of thought

• skills in case construction                                   

• persuasive, confident speaking

• skills in refutation and argument re-building

INTERACTIVE WORKSHOPS:  Online debate workshops are designed in a fun, interactive way. Participants develop debate skills via opportunities to work together, share thinking and debate twice 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.  

 

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:
