Director of debate and rhetoric expert on presidential debate expectations and tips
John Koch, senior lecturer and director of debate, is available for commentary on the presidential debate.
A recognized scholar on presidential communication and rhetoric, Koch's research focuses on the debate process/pedagogy and is guided by the question of how we can improve citizenship practices and debates within our political culture.
Koch can discuss:
- How recent events, such as Amy Coney Barrett's SCOTUS nomination, Trump's COVID-19 diagnosis and racial tensions will impact messaging from both parties
- How viewers can watch and evaluate debates like an expert
- How viewers can and should discuss debates with first time teenage/college voters and children
