“If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time-a tremendous whack.” (Winston Churchill)
Communicative competence, charisma, the ability to convey a message with ease and confidence are crucial skills for teachers and for their learners.
We are preparing learners for jobs that don’t exist yet, and to use technologies that haven’t been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are going to be problems. Knowledge-based learning is a thing of the past; we need to “future-proof” our learners by teaching them how to present themselves and deliver their message.
We invite you to learn how to make any subject or presentation captivating, so you can guide your students in their journey to find their voice (literally and metaphorically).
In this course, the starting point is our main work tool: the human voice. First, we explore our anatomy to understand “what does what”, when it comes to producing language, and how to help our body’s performance, thus ensuring vocal health and clear pronunciation.
Then we connect the dots, to understand how our emotions affect our execution, how fear of rejection or shyness manifests in our learners’ body language. That way, we can provide them with tangible, effective means to redirect that energy to improve their communication skills instead of blocking them.
The next step in our journey will focus on creativity: we will explore brain-training strategies that have the power to help learners unlock inventiveness and adaptability learn how to convey convincing key points, how to organize them in an enthralling way, and how to design presentations using apps and webs available on the Internet.
Our final goal? Help you make the classroom a truly informative environment, where listening and speaking play an integral role in the teaching and evaluation process. Acquire competencies that will help you become a better teacher and be valuable to your learners, whatever the future may bring.
