This event is open to undergrad and grad students and postdocs. Have you had that awkward moment in a presentation where someone asks a really weird question? Has a student in class posed an off-the-wall idea while you are presenting? Do you fear what a committee member may ask in your thesis defense? This improv workshop will help develop skills to respond to such situations. We will be doing improv comedy exercises to develop a comfort with engaging others. Participants should expect to participate in improv comedy exercises with attendees. Fun will be had by all...we hope. Advanced registration required via CareerBridge. Registration begins 12/15/15.
