I wanted to point folks that might be interested to a new online policy debate camp this summer. Access Debate Camp is designed to be an alternative camp experience for those that can't afford the higher priced camps or need more flexible camp scheduling this summer. All levels of debate experience are welcome.
Please note that nothing has been spared in terms of faculty and instruction. In fact, an advantage to our model is that you have the opportunity to learn from a much wider range of debate minds than ever before.
Some of this year's faculty include:
Ellis Allen - University of Michigan
David Cram Helwich - University of Minnesota
Chris Crowe - University of California Berkeley
Mike Davis - James Madison University
Paul Johnson - University of Pittsburgh
Derek Liles - Dallas Urban Debate Alliance
Chris Loghry - Emporia State University
Andrew Markoff - Georgetown University
Nick Miller - Emory University
Kaavya Ramesh - Michigan State University
Nicole Wanzer-Serrano - Dallas Urban Debate Alliance
Melvin Washington - Wake Forest University
Our goal is to replicate the live camp experience and also benefit from the advantages that an online model offers. Your attendance will get you a lecture series designed for an online audience (not merely video-taped from a live audience), an evidence set and any evidence produced at ADC, and 10+ full practice debates with a wide range of judges and input, in addition to practice speeches and online lab discussions. We have many more interesting and innovative ideas in store!
Access Debate Camp will primarily run through the PaDS interface available at www.paperlessdebate.com, offering the opportunity to work with paperless debate software that you're likely to encounter throughout your debate career.
We will be updating the website for registration soon and adding faculty.
Dates: June 23 - August 2
Price: $300 for the full camp experience, $150 for just the lecture series and evidence (no debates).
Feel free to ask any questions here, or to contact us through the website at www.accessdebate.com
