Course Description

In a world where life is getting more and more complicated, conventional education is losing ground. This course proposes a novel approach to education— i.e., one that can bring learning to life, and is more practical, holistic, creative, expressive, and enjoyable for both teachers and students. Since education is, essentially, a performance art, this course will propose to use drama as a learning tool to develop the social and communication skills of your students.
Participants will acquire novel competences in coordinating and activating groups in terms of emotional management in an entertaining and creative way and, also, applying expressive tools in various educational contexts. They will be active protagonists since the educational experience will be centered on their own abilities. Objectives will be carried out through theatre exercises, improvisations, simulations, storytelling, somatic (body) techniques, games, and group work.
By the end of the course, participants will know new ways to boost participation, motivation, confidence, self-expression and cooperative spirit in the classroom, as well as to manage conflict, and reinforce the teacher-student relationship. They will have also learnt to take the role of facilitators rather than teachers, so they can turn their student into protagonists of their own learning. The course will also help teachers address the needs of students who have difficulties with their social and communicative skills (e.g., students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, emotional and behavioral difficulties).
