Learn theatre techniques for the classroom at workshop
1 July 2013
'The Art of Teaching' is a one-day workshop that will help participants develop confidence and communication skills for use in teaching.
Theatre training is not only for actors - it's of great value to everyone, especially to those who require confidence and effective communication skills in order to give presentations, lectures and speeches.
In the Art of Teaching workshop, which runs on July 17, 19 and 24, San Francisco State University's Professor Jo Tomalin will help participants develop techniques traditionally taught to actors which will help make their teaching more effective.
The practical and theoretical theatre experiences in this workshop also provide introductory tools to develop creative teaching strategies that encourage student participation and, as a result, enhance the learning experience.
The workshop will cover:
- Voice skills that will enhance your communication skills, such as how to warm up, project and use your voice effectively.
- Body language skills that will improve your presence and awareness of how body language affects the audience.
- Storytelling and improvisation techniques to develop spontaneity and to stimulate ideas for creative teaching and learning activities.
- Discussion about active learning strategies to motivate students and increase class participation.
The workshop includes a combination of mini-lecture, active participation and discussion in a supportive environment.
To book a place on one of the workshops, which run from 10am-4pm on July 17, 19 and 24, go to the Single Training Booking System.
