Student Workshop: 10.00am to 3.00pm
The 2017 Summer School will consist of a series of mini-lectures, workshops and discussion sessions. These sessions will be conducted by experienced debaters who will demonstrate the three key aspects of debating – matter, manner and method. The requirements of each of these areas become more extensive as debaters progress through the grades of the Schools Competition and, as such, the student workshop through its tiered discussion programme is highly valuable for both novice and seasoned debaters alike.
Coaches are encouraged to attend these seminars, as direction will be given with respect to the criteria used by adjudicators in grading a debater’s performance.
An attendance fee of $20 per student is payable on arrival. The QDU encourages all students to pre purchase tickets to this event. The QDU requests that schools send teachers, coaches or parents as well to supervise their students, entry for adults is free.
