Improve Your Classroom Voice

Description

Good teaching is more than just presenting information. We want students to engage and get excited about what they are learning. Like an actor on stage, an instructor with a strong, dynamic voice in the classroom communicates information in an engaging way that excites students to learn. In this interactive workshop, participants learn practical exercises in order to better their breathing, projection and vocal dynamics.

Your classroom presence can go a long way toward keeping your students focused and attentive as well as keeping you energized throughout the semester. View this workshop to learn how your voice can better reflect the passion for your discipline and, in turn, engender that passion in your students.
