Finding and Exploring Your Teacher Voice
Workshop presentation and materials prepared by:

Experience. Observe. Reflect. Apply.
Through exploration of the art of teaching.
Participants considered aspects of their personal and unique ways of teaching through experiencing improvisational games, reflecting upon and discussing leadership after examination of YouTube clip examples; and preparing and executing a lecture, a presentation, and an interactive teaching activity. After the four sessions of the workshop, participants formed a cohort that supported and considered applications of the work in actual classroom situations.
