Each year, The Detroit Creativity Project creates pathways to foster social and emotional learning for over 700 middle and high school students. A higher education researcher uses a faculty training methodology that improves student engagement and learning. An elementary teacher-turned-training strategist  applies innovative techniques to change the way students in Thailand and the U.S. develop literacy and engage with writing. Their secret? These practitioners know: improv works in education.  In this dynamic panel discussion and interactive workshop, participants will hear from three practitioners who dared to say yes. Find out what happens when improv shakes up traditional learning models.
