Inhoud
In this study unit, students get acquainted with theoretical concepts in the academic fields of rhetoric and argumentation. They learn about classic rhetorical theory and modern persuasion techniques that are based upon classic concepts. They will also learn about reasoning schemes and different types of argumentation that may be used to explain a standpoint and to convince others. In a series of tutorials, students are trained to present and defend their ideas about big data in relation to the self, corporation, and society. After the tutorials, students write a position paper (8S1) in which they take a clear standpoint. They underpin this standpoint with various types of arguments and they use an appropriate persuasive style. Next to this, they participate in a debate (8S2), trying to convince others of their standpoint.

This study unit is part of the Communication science module The quantified self. Because the four courses, which are part of the module, are highly related to each other it is not possible to follow this study unit separately.
