Graduate Student Improv Workshop

Prof. Kenneth Noll of the Molecular and Cell Biology Dept. will be sponsoring an improvisation workshop to help graduate students from all areas of study to develop listening skills necessary for effective communication in your profession and in job interviews. Communication is two-way, so listening attentively is extremely important. This workshop will give you some basic tools and training to help you work on listening skills as well as learning to think on your feet. This is not meant to make you a comedian nor an actor. You will not be expected to get up on a stage to perform. The workshop uses group and partner activities to help build your skills and confidence as a listener.

The workshop will be held for 4 weeks on Monday evenings, March 19 to April 9 from 6-9 pm in Oak Hall Room 106. The instructor will be an experienced improv performer from Hartford’s SeaTea improv company. A $5 cash fee is due to Dr. Kenneth Noll at the first session. If you attend at least 3 of the sessions, your $5 will be refunded. The class size is limited to 14, so register soon to get your spot. A waiting list will be kept in case of cancelations. To register contact Dr. Noll at kenneth.noll@uconn.edu and let him know which graduate program you are in.
