POSTPONED - Reflective Practice Large Group Meeting for Faculty and Teaching Associates: Improv for the Classroom: Improving Student Engagement & Empathetic Communication

MCSLE Great Room, Elkin Hall Center for Teaching Excellence

Improv is more than the gags and one-liners on “Whose Line is It Anyway?” Improvisation skills are now being used in multiple professional fields to improve communication, stimulate creativity and enhance collaboration. In this inclusive, relaxed and interactive workshop, you will learn some of the principles that underlie effective improvisation through large and small group exercises that can be used in any classroom. Participants can expect to take away simple but effective exercises to enhance student engagement and empathetic communication through active learning.
