Huffaker, Julie Sheldon; West, Ellen
Journal of Management Education, v29 n6 p852-869 2005
Improv? In a business classroom? The goal was to find out how these tools might enhance learning. This article describes the authors' journey exploring using improvisational forms in a business class. The article describes the three primary learning objectives that the authors hoped to accomplish using improv tools, a detailed account of how the tools were used, and how it all worked out--the classroom outcomes--along with observations and feedback from the students. In addition, instructions for three easily implemented improv forms are provided so the reader can experiment with them in the classroom if desired.
