Interested in improving your science communication skills? Wish you had the confidence to ask questions in a crowded seminar or conference? Want to become a better networker?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should sign up for the upcoming FREE BGS Improv Workshop this October and November!
Improv is not stand-up comedy; it is acting without a script. It is about thinking on your feet, problem solving, being authentic, encouraging effective communication, projecting confidence, facilitating teamwork, and not being worried about making mistakes. Gain transferable skills needed in the lab and for communicating science to colleagues and to the general public.
This 6-week workshop, led by professional instructor Sharon Geller, will provide a fun and supportive learning environment for exploring improv techniques and improving communication skills.
Mondays, October 7th – November 11th from 5:30-7:30PM
Room 425 Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center
Instructor: Sharon Geller (Improv instructor at the Walnut Street Theater)
