Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to create a web-based resource for instructors using improvisation techniques with older adults. The goals of this project were to increase instructors' knowledge of improvisation and to provide resources and scene ideas to help instructors in teaching a class in improvisation.

The web-based resource is currently available on-line and consists of twelve sections: home, about me, research, improvisation exercises, mild cognitive impairment exercises, scene work basics, scene examples, instructor evaluation, participant evaluation, resources, references, and contact information. The exercises and scenes were developed from the researcher's experience in various improvisation classes. The research section was developed using information from research studies. An expert-review panel reviewed the website. An instructor evaluation was created to provide feedback for the researcher on the instructor's experience using the website. The participant evaluation was created to obtain feedback about the experience of taking the class.
