Theatre Pedagogy: Teaching the Art Form
April 23 - 26, 2009
NYU's Program in Educational Theatre has been a leader in investigating and engaging in the teaching of theatre for the past four decades. Currently, through our extensive curricular offerings (which range from undergraduate to doctoral programs of study), we, as practitioners, are constantly exploring new ways to reinvigorate our pedagogical approaches in order to keep them both vital and innovative.
The goal of this forum is to facilitate dynamic exchange with the best teachers of theatre on all educational levels and to talk about what works in theory, in practice, and the space between -- sharing inspirations, challenges and discoveries -- whether in teaching and presenting the art form, integrating drama into any given theatre curriculum, or engaging in teacher preparation.
