In this session, participants will learn about finding time for active learning and experience how the tools of improvisation can improve your teaching engagement. To find time for active learning -- flip your class! Come and discuss the most effective ways to incentivize students to prepare for class and engage with the material. This semester's book read by Alan Alda showed the impact of improvisation on improving communication. Participants will experience the usefulness of improvisation methods for pedagogical purposes - realizing that many effective teaching practices already encourage improvisation. Participants will also learn about incorporating games as integrated activities in courses.
