Thanks to those who attended the engaging brown-bag event today on how improv benefits our science communication.

The fundamental skills that improvisers develop are: Trust; Spontaneity; Accepting offers; Listening and Awareness; Storytelling; and Performing with Presence.

We played some games and learned the three improv principles:thumb_Improv-for-Success

  1. Say “yes, and” (Agreement)
  2. Make your partner look good (Support)
  3. Follow the rules (Trust)

Please fill out a very short (less than 1 minute) survey, so we can gauge interest for future improv training at OSU.  

If you attended the session today, we also appreciate any feedback.
