Visual, auditory and kinesthetic experiences are the primary ways we can reach our students. With the exception of a small handful of disciplines, however, kinesthetic learning is rarely seen in college classrooms. Moving Analogies bring kinesthetic learning back into the classroom and are designed to open up discussion of an abstract or complex topic. This interactive workshop will introduce moving analogies that target business and entrepreneurial concepts and mindsets. Example exercises will include:
- Organizational alignment using principles of Aikido
- Dynamic nature of markets using a theater improv warmup
- Resource identification using a jazz improv exercise
- Vision statements using a modern dance exercise
Each active exercise has a physical component that is paired with a lesson and further thoughts to consider. Ample time will be reserved for questions and for participants to work on creating their own moving analogies.
