Communication Skills

To be a good teacher it is essential that he/she has a burning desire to impart knowledge. But more often than not the students lose interest in what the teachers are speaking after they have heard him/her for just 10 minutes. Therefore to keep up their attention and curiosity, the teacher needs to be enthusiastic and make learning a whole lot of fun.

And this is where the importance of better communication comes in. Fluency in English, speech modulations, eye-contact, expressions and presentation are the key factors in effective communication.

Effective oral and written communication is important in every facet of life that teachers of every subject especially language teachers should place a high priority on when they enter the classroom.

  The Programme

Upgrade 101 is a course module which aims to familiarize and prepare teachers in the areas like Speech, Drama, Communication skills, Reading skills and making poetry teaching a whole lot of fun.

  The Teacher’s Voice

A compelling and in depth look at what is often taken for granted, overlooked and often times neglected, Mahrukh N. Bharucha comes forth and tackles what is in reality one of the teacher's most valuable tools: The Teacher's voice.

Much more than a recipe book for lessons, "The Teacher's Voice" attempts to address the more fundamental gift of voice and offers long term aids in the way of exercises which can alleviate damaging stress as well as imparting practical skills for developing a rich, flexible and confident voice.

This is a half to one day workshop for teachers on how to look after your voice.
