What makes communication effective and engaging? What components of communication are important to consider as you teach, give presentations, or share your research with different audiences?  How do you prepare what you want to say and how you want to say it? In this session, we will explore strategies to engage your audience, including how to use your voice and body language, different organizational strategies, and the impact of visual materials. If you want to go into more depth on visual communication, attend Part 2 of our communication series at the Bok Center’s Learning Lab directly following this session.

This session is part of the Fall Teaching Conference, which is designed to prepare new and experienced graduate student teachers for their roles as Teaching Fellows in the FAS. Pre-registration is required. Learn more here.
