Promoting inclusion, intercultural understanding, empathy, and democratic values at school has never been as essential as now. In a world where the migration of people across nations is the norm, teachers are requested to equip young learners with all competencies necessary for becoming responsible citizens of tomorrow’s democratic society.
This course proposes drama pedagogy as a response to this challenge. Drama pedagogy has been recognized internationally by teachers as a compelling, challenging, and stimulating learning experience through which students can explore issues from across the curriculum, develop their understanding of drama, hone real-life knowledge and skills, and come to a better understanding of the world around.
With drama pedagogy, students learn not only about drama but also through drama – that is, they learn to exploit dramatic experiences to make meaning from the real world.
The course highlights the key features of drama pedagogy to clarify its principles and strengths and adopts a hands-on approach. As a participant, you will learn how to use drama conventions in educational contexts by engaging directly in two drama workshops – on the themes of inclusion and democratic values, respectively. After each workshop, the group will debrief and reflect on the first-hand dramatic experience.
Participants will also take away drama pedagogy resources with ready-to-use lesson plans, a wide range of drama conventions, and tips for teachers’ roles in drama pedagogy. By the end of the course, you will know how to use drama pedagogy to structure creative, enactive, and engaging learning experiences for your students.
Join this course to experience the transformative power of drama pedagogy, and take away the toolbox with a wide range of drama conventions and lesson plans for you to use in your classes.
Note: Prior experience or knowledge of drama pedagogy is not required. Participants will be guided step-by-step to participate and learn from the dramatic experience.
