  • Course Regularly Taught
    Dr. Marco Ehrl draws upon teaching experience from German and American Universities. The goal of his teaching is for students to see close links between experience, theory, application, and reflection. To this end, he often uses group activities, role-playing, debates, and group projects. These methods teach students the importance of division of labor and thereby help them to identify their communicative strengths and weaknesses and learn about moral leadership. His teaching includes Communication Theory, International Communication, Multicultural Communication, Rhetorical Criticism, Persuasion, Argumentation & Debate, and Public Speaking.
