In the Limelight – From ARTistry to Classroom Mastery
In teaching and learning, both teachers and students can benefit from the insights of applying theatre techniques. More educational programs at universities, including their professional business schools draw from various disciplines in the arts. Teaching skills can be enhanced and strengthened by drawing from artistic fields such as theatre, in applying techniques on how to prepare for the stage, how to go on stage, how to own the stage, how to engage your audience, and how to create an engaging learning journey.
We know about techniques of applying rhetoric principles, the power of presence, the art of noticing, embodiment, verbal- and non-verbal alignment, storytelling elements, and audience characteristics. All techniques are commonly used in theatre practice and this workshop shows how a combination of these insights can be applied to strengthen and broaden teaching performance and create cognitive-transferable learning experiences.
This is done by: learning by doing, theoretical explanations, ambitious goalsetting of demonstrating new behavior, workshop discussion, and creating a maximum performance situation.
This one-day course is designed for faculty to strengthen and broaden teaching performance and create cognitive-transferable learning experiences. Faculty will gain insights into becoming more effective as a teacher in:
– creating exciting learning journeys (e.g., storytelling ~ above and beyond)
– strengthening the execution of teaching (e.g., learnings from a performing artist in
theatre and dance)
Deep dive in dynamic sessions through creative and engaging ways
Experimenting with new endeavors
Participants will experience an innovative creative approach
Notably, no experience with performing arts (e.g. acting, dance) is expected or required.
Faculty – any level
