Helping Students Cope with Stage Fright

Tuesday, November 5, 2019
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Center for Teaching Excellence, Feinstein 304

Facilitator: Megan Chang, Assistant Professor of Voice & Speech

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, it’s not uncommon for people to experience anxiety or panic symptoms when faced with the prospect of speaking in public. Even a seemingly minor case of “the jitters” can disrupt a student’s ability to effectively give a speech. Join us as we explore strategies and exercises we can use to help students cope with speech anxiety.
