This course has been created to promote theatre as a pedagogical tool and its applicability to promote inclusion. The teachers interested in participating will learn a variety of practical activities that focus on theatre as a way to promote empathy and mutual understanding within the classroom.
In a world where migration increases day by day, values such as empathy, inclusion and intercultural understanding are essential for an integral educational curriculum. To that extent, teachers are often requested to prepare young learners on becoming responsible citizens. With this course, teachers will learn through some theatre practices how to promote a better understanding of the other and the world around, on the theme of inclusion and democratic values. This hands-on approach on drama making will enable the participants to exploit dramatic experiences and make meaning from the real world and its problems.
