AASSA Educators’ Conference 2012

Vicki Hannah Lein

"Applied Improvisation in the Classroom"



Presenter Name:  Vicki Hannah Lein


Presenter Contact Info--Email: vickihannahlein@gmail.com



Presentation Description: Much more organizational effort goes into planning, which is instantly out of date, than into building our ability to respond and adapt to change. Applied Improvisation is about preparing for the unexpected. When we are willing to face the truth that most of life is unexpected, then taking some time to learn how to improvise can make the difference between a successful life and the life of frustration and alienation.

In this workshop we will engage our bodies, minds, and spirit in activities that inspire creativity and teamwork. The games we will play will help us learn how to balance our individual ingenuity with the needs of a group.  Our brains will be fed, our immune systems boosted, and our mood lightened. It’s science!

All the activities in this workshop are based on brain research and are adaptable to all ages and all groups. You don’t need any experience with improvisation to come and play. If you are willing to step out of your comfort zone, you will be delighted at how much humor and laughter you find.
