Adaptations and examples
For Theater of the Oppressed: Can be done synchronously using Zoom, all students in one room; can be done asynchronously via Google docs, writing script instead of acting out, and spectactors participate by using suggest changes to edit the script.
For TRIZ/Purpose to Practice: Can be done using breakout rooms and taking notes on Google Docs or some other collaborative editing tool. Can also have students explore on their own time and record their discussions.
