Would you like to be better at communicating your science? Join us for improvisational exercises as we build our skills in becoming better science communicators and co-create a community of practice. Learn how to express your passion through techniques that engage body language, adaptability, and engagement with audiences. Speaking Science Improv is a great way to improve your presentation skills.
Our sessions will be led by Luverne Seifert from the Dept. of Theater, Arts and Dance. Each participant will receive a certificate for completing the series.
No! All U of M graduate students, faculty and researchers are welcome regardless of discipline.
Come as you are. No need to prepare or to bring anything with you.
The cost for faculty and staff is $50 for the entire 5-session series and $35 for graduate students and post-docs.
When you teach or present at a conference, you may have noticed that things don’t always go as planned. Improv gives you the ability to read an audience and communicate complex concepts in a way that resonates and sticks with your audience. And when things don’t go as planned, with improv skills you’ll quickly be able to adapt and get things back on track.
