Does speaking in front of students make you nervous and self-conscious? Are you worried that your nerves could get in the way of your being an effective teacher? If you are like many people who feel anxious about public speaking and teaching students you barely know, then join us for this fun and practical workshop series. Through various exercises, we'll help you become more comfortable in your various instructional roles as "the teacher" and let your best self come through naturally when running a class and interacting with students.
Part I will focus on the voice and breathing, Part II will focus on posture and movement, and Part III will focus on thinking quickly in front of the class.

We know that active teaching methods result in better retention and increased satisfaction among students in all disciplines, but recent changes in flexible classroom design are becoming an important part of that dynamic on this campus. From designing new classroom spaces, to designing new courses, our staff is helping to reimagine teaching and learning on this campus—one classroom at a time. Learn more about flexible classrooms.
New technologies offer many options to structure precisely how you and your students communicate. They can give your students greater voice, help you know what your students know, make class time more engaging, increase time-on-task, and provide new ways to present concepts that were previously impossible. The Instructional Spaces & Technology group seeks to raise the awareness and thoughtful use of technologies in the service of teaching and learning across campus.
