10.-11.06.2021: Vocal Training for the Virtual Stage - ONLINE KURS

Workshop language is English.


 

Target group  

Doctoral candidates and postdocs

 

Objective

A trainer with a professional theatre background will work with participants to optimize their verbal and non-verbal skills presenting in a virtual setting. Integral to voice and body training is the central idea that physical and vocal dynamics are connected to the speaker’s motivation and to the importance of the information being communicated. The trainer identifies the verbal challenges of each speaker, giving attention to breath, articulation, intonation, volume, modulation and tempo. Coaching is given to optimize non- verbal communication before the camera such as gesture, positioning, distance and eye contact.

The workshop is designed to be interactive and tailored to the participants needs. Participants will meet in the morning sessions for a threehour session to train vocal and non-verbal communication techniques, using free-speaking exercises as a method to integrate learned skills. Participants are then clustered in small groups for intensive one-hour coaching in the afternoon sessions. Participants monitor their improvement and implement feedback with coaching given during a short impromptu or prepared talk
