The Voice: The Teacher's Most Important Tool

The Voice: The Teacher's Most Important Tool
Tuesday, December 4, 2014
9:00 am - 1:00 pm, Tuscola Rooms, WSW
Lunch provided

Facilited by Stephanie Dean, Assistant Professor, Theatre

We spend so much time focusing on syllabi, lectures and course preparation that we forget that the delivery of the material could be damaging our most important tool: our voice. This workshop will tackle the common vocal obstacles that teachers face daily including hoarseness, difficulty projecting, and use of vocal range for classroom engagement. There will also be a question and answer portion to address specific participant issues.

Cloth Bag Discussion Series

As a follow-up to the pre-covocation workshop, the TCLT will host a series of discussions related to the text, Learner Centered Teaching: Putting Research into Practice by Terry Doyle (2012).
