The School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) through the Communication and Languages Department and in cooperation with the Human Resource Development Office spearheaded the Public Speaking and Impression Management Training for public school teachers of the Divisions of Angeles City and Pampanga, and the HAU non-teaching personnel.
The two webinar sessions were conducted last May 11 and 15 which drew 77 and 90 participants, respectively. The training sought to provide the participants with practical skills and knowledge necessary to express themselves clearly, with confidence and power, in a variety of speaking situations. The webinar also served as one of the extension projects of the department for HAU community as well as the partner schools.
Resources speakers were two faculty members from the Communication and Languages Department, Ms. Kimberly Pineda and Mr. Christian Darnel David.
Dr. Irelyn Tamayo, the Divisions Superintendent of Angeles City, expressed her gratitude for the opportunity provided to the elementary and high school public school teachers. She is also hopeful that the learnings of the participants will translate in the practice of their profession.
Another run of the webinar is on the works intended for the faculty members of the university.
