Drama and Improvisation
Want to get your message across?
Improvisation is one of the most efficient and exciting ways to develop core business and communication skills. Whether you have to chair a meeting or deliver a presentation, improvisation can help you make clear decisions in the moment and communicate your ideas effectively. So whether you want to focus on listening skills, body language or use of your voice, the module Improvisation and Drama provides the safe environment in which to explore and practise different aspects of your own style.
This module is scheduled at the same time as Intercultural Awareness. They can therefore not be taken simultaneously.

This course is an introduction to Drama and Improvisation. In 14 sessions (examination is the 15th session), we will explore the basic underpinnings of body language, acting and dramatical design. In its core, this course is practical. The main goal, therefore, lies in connecting drama techniques to practical work situations.
This module (part-time) encourages you to become aware of yourself and the way you present yourself to others. By being creative, spontaneous and supportive within a safe environment, you will develop some important skills, such as listening, presenting and public speaking.

- learning to express yourself freely in different manners
