Programme: Voice Coaching
Course: Using the Voice to Engage and Inspire

A workshop for lecturers and researchers looking at voice use and technique
A day long course divided over 2 mornings                  

Many undergraduate students only work with full time academic faculty in the context of the lecture theatre. Many groups are large/very large and many are studying technically and/or theoretically complex material. This presents lecturers with a number of challenges around engaging and motivating students and communicating enthusiasm and interest in order to encourage students to then go on to do the necessary independent study for effective learning and to make the most of classes and office hours.

This workshop focuses on how to make the most of your voice in this context. In an informal relaxed environment we will work to raise awareness of how the voice functions and how you can look after it. You will also be given practical exercises to take away which you can use to expand your expressiveness further.

These exercises are to help you prepare so you can develop a voice which naturally conveys the message you wish and when you speak you not only inform, but also inspire and influence the students listening to you.

“It’s not how strongly you feel about your topic, it’s how strongly they feel about your topic after you speak”
Tim Salladay

Please do ensure that you can attend - and do sign up for - both mornings, on 19th May and 2nd June.
