Event Description

Explore the use of improvisation in the classroom as a novel method of changing not only the way we teach but also the way students learn. While improvisation is typically used for entertainment purposes, this technique is gaining attention in other areas (e.g., in management and leadership) as a means to not only promote team-building, but to also foster idea-generation and understanding in an engaging and active way. By the end of this day-long workshop, you will understand the benefits of using improv in teaching, for both the student and the teacher. You’ll also gain experience by participating in improv exercises and explore using various exercises in an educational setting. Finally, you will develop practical strategies for using improv in your class.
