Unit 5: Extending the Improvisation

Hopefully, our "Trading Spaces" improv has helped stimulate some creative thinking regarding how we think about our institutions as well as how we might re-imagine them. This is also a new improv variation to consider when creating student-creation prompts for students.

As we did in Unit 4, I would now like us to think about how this completion improv might be modified and/or reused in different disciplines, courses, or situations.

For example, this improv makes uses of a set collection of images as a foundation, and then asks participants to complete designs using those images. What value do you see, for example in having students contribute the initial set of images?

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?
