Target Audience: All staff involved in delivery of teaching within the university
Teaching is about communication, and through this class you will be able to explore and reflect on a variety of verbal and non-verbal communicative opportunities that can be used to engage students in higher education across the disciplines in the context of a variety of pedagogical approaches. This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to try some of these techniques in a safe and supportive environment while benefiting from feedback from the instructor (with background and expertise in Theatre, Voice, and Communication) and other participants.
- Reflect on pedagogical approaches to teaching and opportunities to engage students through selecting appropriate pedagogies

CANCELLATION We want our events to run at full capacity to ensure value for money and to get the most from group interactions and discussions. Cancelling attendance at a course should only be done as a last resort (some of our events are delivered by consultants and we would incur a high fee if we need to cancel events based on low numbers). Demand is high for our events with many having a waiting list and when a booking is made, others are turned away on the strength of that booking. If you have to cancel an event we would appreciate as much notice as possible (at least 48 hours).
