Communicating Your Passion: A Reprise

Date, Time, Place: 21 Mar 2017, 2-3pm, Doudna 1080 (Globe Studio)

In the classroom or in academic discussions, how do you tell your story, present your vision, or inspire your audience? Last year, Prof. Anne Thibault (Theatre Arts) offered a Faculty Development workshop to help us as faculty manage performance and presentation anxiety, achieve voice control and variety, and improve posture and body language. This month, Prof. Thibault offers a reprise of this workshop explaining the ways to and benefits of Communicating (Y)our Passion. The workshop helps us identify unconscious habits that sabotage our message and shows us how we can more meaningfully engage our students and audiences with authenticity and clarity.
 
Anne Thibault is not only a professional theater artist, but provides workshops to business corporations on speaking and presenting. This is a chance to fine-tune our self-presentation and performance. It will increase our self-awareness of how we influence how our message is received.
