Friday will be fun! (Even if it doesn’t snow)

I’ve been following the snow buzz very closely this week, as this “wintry intrigue” may interfere with the Improv for Teaching and Learning workshop we have been planning for almost a year.

The Zoom workshop is currently scheduled for 9 to 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 8, and it’s open to all faculty and staff.

I’m tempted to further emphasize the fun factor with extra !!!!!, but it’s starting to feel like I’m selling enforced fun, which is …. never fun.

So I will just say this workshop is nothing to be scared of … and it could change your life. No bigs.

I have even created a link to automagically add it to your Outlook calendar, because we should all be formally scheduling our joyful, life-changing moments.

And if we are snowed out, welp, we’ll just have to roll with it and reschedule, which is exactly what improv helps us do: Roll with the inevitable hiccups of life with more creativity and grace and less cussing.

In the meantime — while I’m obsessively refreshing the WDBJ weather maps — please enjoy this 10-minute TEDx talk, which is highly recommended by Ami Trowell, who will be facilitating our workshop.

I explain more about the workshop backstory here:

Hope to see you Friday!
