AIN is developing a facilitator credentialing program, and this Learning Journey is an important step along the way to raising our professional standards. Join Paul Z Jackson and Kat Koppett for day in which we’ll sense-check our proposed standards, whilst establishing a first pool of credentialers. We’ll also introduce how the program will work to certify AIN members whose work as a facilitator using Applied Improvisation (AI) reaches the required standards. We’ll explore the state-of-the-art thinking on:
  • Identifying non-performatory learning objectives
  • Choosing activities
  • Setting up and debriefing improv activities in non-performatory settings
  • Creating safe and inclusive environments
    • Managing group dynamics, resistance and objections
    • Explaining/using improv principles and jargon in non-improv contexts
    • Expanding your own facilitator performance awareness and range
    This session is designed for Certified Practitioners interested in being credentialed (which won’t happen on this day) and/or in being a credentialer (which will happen on this day). Familiarity with basic improvisation methods and concepts will be assumed. Come for the learning, peer-connection and geek-o
