Improv & Design: Mindsets for Collaboration

Winter 2016
Saturday Feb 6, 9:00am-12:00pm, Concept Car
Sunday Feb 7, 12:00pm-4:00pm, Studio 1

The fundamental mindsets for Improv are very complimentary to design thinking. Building on the ideas of others, embracing failure, and being present are just some of the topics we will cover in this action-packed pop.up. Students will jump right into Improve exercises and then participate in easy discussions to identify some of the best mindsets for collaborative work.

The class is open to undergraduate and graduate students at Stanford with a genuine desire to have fun and get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

No previous design or improv experience needed.
