Thinking On Your Feet: Staying in the Moment with Patrons and Coworkers
Improvisation not only a method of creating art spontaneously, but a method of building skills in communication, flexibility and innovation. Join University of Oklahoma Libraries staff member, MLIS graduate (anticipated May 2021), and improv theater director Jay Edwards in an exploration of the fundamentals of successful improvisation. See how applied exercises were integrated into student employee training at OU Libraries, and how workshops for OU librarians and MLIS students examined library services through an improvisational lens. Learn how the collaborative concept of “Yes, And” can strengthen your interactions with patrons, collaborations with team members, and ability to adapt under pressure.
