The Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute presents

A Faculty Development Workshop:

Tuesday, February 18,12:45-1:45pm, NVC 14-280

 

Loud and Clear: Speaking in Large Lectures without Straining

 

From:  Suzanne Epstein, Interim Director, Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute

Have you ever experienced vocal fatigue? Do you struggle to be heard by students in a large lecture hall?  This workshop will give you guidelines and techniques for speaking in classes of all sizes without straining.  Drawing on a number of methods, including those of Kristin Linklater (author of Freeing the Natural Voice) and the Alexander Technique, Communication Fellow Jessica Del Vecchio will guide participants through a series of embodied exercises in order to explore how the voice works and why it sometimes doesn’t. You will learn how to project without straining your voice, and to align the body properly for maximum projection and proper breath support. Participants will leave with resources, warm up exercises for voice and body, and an arsenal of tips and techniques for use while speaking in the classroom.

RSVP to keneika.rowe@baruch.cuny.edu or (646) 312-2060.
