Unit 4: Extending the Improvisation

The sample "completion" improvs for this unit are designed to demonstrate the creativity and versatility inherent in this particular improv model. These improvs are incredible flexible and work particularly well as group activities.

As we did in Unit 3, I would now like us to think about now is how our completion improv examples might be modified for reuse in different disciplines, courses, or situations.

For example, instead of having a text with missing words, we could easily offer a design with specific elements removed/hidden, or a code sample that is missing a number of functions (where multiple function solutions could be used, but with different results). The idea is to allow participants the opportunity to complete the construct in a creative manner without worrying that they might be suggesting a "wrong" solution.

What are some other possible applications you see? What modifications would you make to the current improv model that might make it more effective? More fun and engaging? Are there similar improvs or completion activities you have used or participated in previously? If so, what did you like about them?
