“How is Teaching Like Acting?”

 Thursday, October 23rd,

 3:30pm – 4:30pm (5:00pm for TW scholars)

 Room MCML 258

 Everyone welcome!


How is teaching like acting? Find out in the encore performance of this popular workshop. We will discuss warming up before the performance (class), and how to perform (lecture) at your best by improving your honesty, vocal control, body language, creativity, and awareness of the audience. You will be swept into the action with activities like Woosh!, Line Delivery, Body Language and Microscenes. This session allows you to play, practice and discuss various acting games and ideas aimed at improving the effectiveness of your teaching.

Greg Bole has been a lab faculty, lecturer and now Instructor in the Biology Program at UBC for the past eleven years and was awarded the 2007/08 Faculty of Science Killam Prize for Excellence in Teaching.  Greg started acting when he was 12 years old and continues it as a hobby.  He has also been portraying Charles Darwin for the past seven years to classes and conferences in a wide variety of locations.
