Students of teaching from Chemnitz and Leipzig work in the current semester playfully on their communicative competencies. They would like to invite you to the ImproShow on the April, 29 in the Chemnitz theatre KOMPLEX (Zietenstrasse 32). Feel free to come and to join in. Free admission, donations are welcome.

The event is part of the seminar project “Professional communication in school: an interdisciplinary concept for play based competence development for student teachers in Saxony”. The Centre of Teacher Trainee and School Research from Leipzig, the Centre of Teacher Trainee and the Institute for German Studies and Communication from the TU Chemnitz are participants of this project. The aim of this teaching and learning project is the development, implementation and evaluation of a university seminar, where student teachers work on their profession-specific communicative competence.

Diploma speech scientist Ronald Herzog manages the event on the TU Chemnitz and develops the concept together with his Leipzig colleague Susann Krämer. “The methodological core of the seminar are exercises from the improvisational theatre and forum theatre. We will promote the communicative self-confidence of the students. The public appearance is an important component for it”, says Ronald Herzog.

On the April, 29 the students from Leipzig come to Chemnitz to do a workshop with improvisation techniques and exercises together. In the theatre there will be short developed scenes on the stage. Even when we could not say what exactly happens, Ronald Herzog promises: “It will be curious, energetic and amusing!”

The project is supported by the "Hochschuldidaktisches Zentrum Sachsen".
