Effective public speaking is essential to creating a dynamic learning
environment, and to cultivating leadership potential, both in the
classroom and in the world. But what are the secrets of successful public
speaking? And how can you utilize the qualities of your own voice
strategically, through emphasis and inflection, to enhance the way you
organize and present information, and thus to facilitate more active
student engagement? This panel discussion explores the relationship
between voice, confidence, and classroom presence, and offers practical
tips for finding, developing, and making the most of your voice and thus
honing your pedagogical style to suit the needs of large lecture classes
and more intimate seminar situations. Since lunch will be provided, please
RSVP to Carole.Capsalis at colorado.edu.
