By Amy Zelenski, Assistant Professor, General Internal Medicine

Registration required by June 19th. Space is limited. No fee.

Effectively communicate about your work to any audience! The basic skills of improv are close listening, self-awareness, authenticity, and spontaneity. This training includes partner/group activities and a safe space to practice. Improvisational theater is the teaching method and the pedagogical structure.

During this workshop, you will learn how to

  1. Effectively communicate about your work to different audiences
  2. Adjust your behavior in real time to respond to audience feedback
  3. Manipulate your vocal and physical presence to communicate more effective

It’s a transferable skill! Employers need employees who can

  • Communicate about science clearly and vividly
