Thinking Spaces: “Improv for Scientists”

University of Guelph, MacKinnon Building 87 Trent Ln, Guelph, Ontario

Improvisational exercises have been a key element of theatre training for decades. With minor modification, these same exercises can be used in training scientists (and future scientists) to be better communicators. I’ll discuss my use of improv with our physics majors at U of G and give some examples of the science-y twists we throw on the activities to suit our purposes.
