I’m Kenton Anderson and I’m your guide for this semester’s Oral Communication course here at Buffalo State. I look forward to meeting each of you and finding out your goals and dreams as they pertain to communication of all kinds. This semester, we’ll focus on Performing Public Speaking, but we’ll also touch on Theory, Self-Talk (Intrapersonal Communication), Dyadic and Small Group Interaction (Interpersonal Communication), Interviewing and Research skills. We’ll even work on increasing your comfort levels in each of these areas, reducing or “transmuting” apprehension into accomplishment. I wish each of you the joy of accomplishing your finest work and getting closer to your life’s richest potential. See you in class!
