Practical workshops

Voice training for academics

Margarita Jeliazkova (Institute ELAN)

Teachers are professional speakers. The workshop is for university teachers who want to use their voices to communicate clearly, freely, and without strain. You get practical tips for voice care and for more expression. You learn how to address tension in your voice and how to influence group dynamics through your voice, for instance when leading a discussion. We pay special attention to teaching in English, as teaching in a non-native language can create additional challenges.

The workshop leader is an experienced teacher educator and voice trainer who combines her own teaching experience with a practical approach to voice development.
