This course proposes theatre as a means to stimulate learning. Teachers interested in participating will learn a variety of practical activities that focus on drama conventions as a way to engage the students in a compelling and challenging way of thinking and doing when faced with problems.
Adopting practices, such as improvisation, body-movement techniques and group work, the course will promote various experiences through which students can explore different responses on problem solving, develop their understanding of the other and the world around and improve their knowledge and skills. Teachers will learn how to apply these practices as a means to promote the students’ feeling of belonging within the school community and stimulate the learning experience through a hands-on approach.
