Sorry for the late update, I waited to collect some training material from Pro Am yesterday.
Thank you for all who attended internal/ Pro Am last week, we are glad to see your enthusiasm.
As you can see in the attachments, I have included the training materials from Week 2 Internals and 2 additional training slides we used at ProAm Internal Intensive yesterday. In order the first three are the slides from Pro Am, and the next two are from Internal 2 in Week 2. The aim is that those who did not attend will get to catch up on what we have learned so far, and keep coming back to practise.
Trialling for Easters (the first major tournament of the year) is up and live. Remember to sign-up if you are interested in a bit more practice with people from other institutions over a 5-day intensive with 3 preliminary rounds each day for the first 2 days, and a break into the finals over the next two days. The tournament is about development, so each team will consist of 2 novices (people who are new to debating) and 1 pro (people who have competed at university tournaments).
You can sign up as either an adjudicator or a debater for this tournament. The trials for debaters are happening from Wed 8 March to Thu 16 March over a week. The trial will also be a good chance for you to practise debating.
