Whose Class Is It Anyway? Improvisation Skills for Instruction
Dr. Miriam Diamond
Teaching would be a lot easier if every class session could be scripted in advance. However, instructing and interacting with students often involves quick thinking, flexibility, and the ability to respond to the unexpected. The capacity to listen, concentrate on several dynamics at the same time and work in a team environment may be called upon, as well. In this session, we discuss and demonstrate how improvisational acting exercises can help faculty and TA's develop skills to enhance teaching effectiveness. Please come prepared to participate!
