Teaching Excellence Workshop:
Improve Your Classroom Voice

Erica Tobolski
Department of Theatre and Dance
September 8, 2010


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, learn practical exercises in order to better your breathing, projection and vocal dynamics. Learn how your voice can better reflect the passion for your discipline and, in turn, engender that passion in your students. Your classroom presence can go a long way in keeping your students focused and attentive and, in turn, keeping you energized throughout the semester.
