‘PLAYGROUND: The Improvisational Teaching Forum’ 12 May

Thursday 12 May
Strand Campus, King’s College London
For postgraduates in all areas

The best teacher are improvisers. ‘PLAYGROUND: The Improvisational Teaching Forum’ aims to allow postgraduate students to flex their spontaneity muscles in a safe and fun environment, and to initiate discussions about how teaching becomes excellent.

On May 12 at 6.15 p.m., ‘PLAYGROUND: The Improvisational Teaching Forum’ welcomes our guest speaker and improviser Esben Wilstrup. Esben will be leading our workshop to new levels of playfulness and help us build a group that can accommodate the unknown and the unexpected.

Esben is a trained social therapist and has completed an internship at the Eastside Institute in New York. He is currently completing his MA in Psychology at the University of Aarhus (Denmark). Esben believes that we learn new skills by doing what we do not yet know how to do; that human beings are always in the process of becoming; and that development is always social. At our session on May 12th, Esben will bring to PLAYGROUND his experience as a role player, a development coach, and an active creater of local and global growth environments.
