Improv Lessons: Tension and Unpredictability

Research is stressful, and much of that stress is unfortunately driven by factors outside your control. And in the time of COVID-19, existing stressors have been amplified and new stressors added. This workshop will explore the themes of tension and unpredictability through the lens of improv, addressing topics and situations such as unexpected questions, challenging conversations, and time management. This is an interactive workshop, so plan to have your camera on if at all possible and come prepared to engage and push your comfort zone.
