Overview

Techniques from the theater and the comedy club to help your students laugh, stay awake, and learn something useful! Like a stage actor or standup comic, trainers perform "on stage" before a live audience. Your presentation must seem spontaneous—even though you've delivered it 100 times. And you must deal with audience feedback and reviews by critics. Author Ellen Dowling has been knocking 'em dead in the classroom and on stage for over 30 years as a trainer, professor, comic, folk-singer, and actor. She shares the secrets of the stage in this witty and enlightening look at how to apply theatrics to training in order to liven up learning. "In life you can be boring," a noted acting teacher observed. "On stage you cannot afford to be boring, not even for an instant." The Standup Trainer will show you how not to be boring in the classroom.
