Lecturing at the Budapest Open

This is a recording of my lecture on teaching debate and argument. I was asked to give it at the start of the 2016 Budapest Open, and was happy to do so. Looking back on it now, I probably should have presented something a bit more animated. I was getting pretty sick at the time (wasn't certain how sick I was getting) and decided to take it easy. This paper I hope to send out for review quite soon, as it's the same one that won top paper at the 2015 National Communication Association conference in the Argumentation division. 

The Q&A I found really engaging. It's good to have a group of people that interested in your ideas. I still feel that debate has a long way to go before it's considered more than just a sideshow to the "serious work" of the university, particularly in Europe. 

I wonder what the plan would look like to make debating a serious or even appropriate subject for scholarly attention at the university level.
