Level Up Your Communication Skills with Improv
1 to 2:30 p.m.
PCL Learning Lab

Improv requires you to understand group dynamics, tell stories, and say yes in the face of the unknown. In many ways, improv draws upon the very same skills we cultivate as science and tech students. This beginner-friendly improv workshop will use the tools of improvisational theater to help you become a better collaborator, increase your storytelling skills, and become more relaxed with all of the unknowns that come with your path in science and tech. RSVP here.

Sponsored by the Graduate School & the UT SciComm Interest Group.
