LD (NCFCA) Mid-Season Workshop
Instructors: Joel Erickson and Hillary Kollsak
When: Tuesday Jan. 29, 8:00-9:00pm CT
Cost: $5 members/$20 non-members
We’ll overview the current debate landscape and discuss the different kinds of LD cases circulating in the league and explain various tactics for engaging the framework debate and practical applications. Additionally, we’ll look at ways to differentiate your argumentation from many of the pitfalls that plague current cases.
Joel has competed for five years in speech events, LD, parliamentary debate, and mock trial. He currently studies philosophy at Wheaton College with the intent to pursue graduate studies in philosophy or attend law school (or both, if his parents will let him). As a coach, Joel can’t wait to immerse you in the big ideas of politics, philosophy, and economics. He’s passionate about communication psychology and elegant organization, and wants everyone to understand that forensic competition is not about the accolades one achieves, but the person one becomes. Joel has coached hundreds of students in speech and debate through summer camps, private coaching, and local clubs, many of whom qualified to Nationals, won tournaments, or advanced to elimination rounds for the very first time. He is the founder of and head coach for Aspire Debate Camps and also coaches for Ethos Debate.
Hillary Kollsak has been a speech and debate mom for many years. She coaches LD for EverReady Debate Club outside of Chicago. She is excited about this years resolution and wants to bring clarity to your cases.
