I am familiar with IPDA debate with some understanding of Parli. I am extremely familiar, however, with IEs. My qualifications are about three years of collegiate debate, along with about seven years of IE experience. I am currently with the Arkansas State Debate team for IPDA and IEs.
I do pay attention to filler words. It’s good to practice not constantly saying, “like, um, stuff, etc.” that’s the IEer in me. Debate and certain draw rounds can be an exception to this, of course.
When it comes to specific debate strategies, I am familiar and okay with most of them. Debate is a game, if you play the right cards and make the right moves, it’s a fun round! So, run and do what you think is good.
I am big on specific rhetoric that is used. However, that should be given. Don’t be abusive.
During CX, I am okay with interrupting your opponent if it is your time to talk. I like straight to the point questions and answers. You don’t have to make those sound all pretty and nice. You only have two minutes.
Other than that, I just want the round to be educational and fun!
