Event details

Target audience: All Academic Staff (i.e. teaching and research) Course description: This is a practical and interactive workshop designed to help you improve your delivery and maximise your voice in lectures. The workshop will provide you with the opportunity to explore techniques and exercises in order to improve your vocal range, variety and clarity and reduce vocal strain and nerves. The workshop will be mostly practical, but there will be an opportunity to exchange and share ideas of strategies that help you during lectures.

By the end of this session, you will:

Have an awareness of voice skills in communication and how to make your voice more interesting through intonation, pitch, tone, pace and rhythm.
Have an insight into how the voice can impact the lecture.
Be more aware of how breathing and pausing can improve speaking and control nerves
Have an opportunity to try out some of the techniques using texts and your own lectures.
