IAP Workshop: Your Place on Stage

January 31, 2018, 2-4 p.m.

Part of the MIT Can Talk series, open to the MIT-community.

Are you tired of reading tiny font and listening to a presenter in the background? Then come to this workshop to learn how to make yourself stand out from your slides! Work with a professional actor to practice effective body language, and explore how to use your body to emphasize and enhance your presentation. Please wear loose clothing conducive for physical movement. This session will be led by Debra Wise, Artistic Director of the Underground Railway Theater.

Take part in a series of six independent IAP workshop sessions on public speaking during the last week of IAP. The sessions are meant to be practical and interactive, and are open to all members of the MIT community. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Pre-registration is encouraged but drop-ins are welcome if space is available.

* Participants of this session are encouraged to take part in the “MIT Can Talk” oratory competition on Friday, February 2 and Saturday, February 3 at the MIT Museum (see IAP listing for more details).
