Dramatic Arts, Part 2

Course Code: YBU20DR21

This is a facilitated online course that includes some mandatory synchronous sessions with real-time group interaction set by the Instructor. Audio and video recordings will be a required element of the learning.

The Dramatic Arts Part 2 Additional Qualification Course extends the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills addressed in Part 1 by reviewing the multiple perspectives of key drama theorists and scholars and embedding these in practical course components. Through experiential learning focused on a range of instructional design and assessment practices, candidates refine their professional practice and, thus, increase individual understanding of drama education as both a discrete arts discipline and an integrative methodology.

All learning in Part 2 is situated within a context of social justice, inclusion, and culturally relevant pedagogy. For example, building upon earlier lesson-planning practice, candidates design a drama-program study unit by engaging both as learners and as teachers through participation and reflection from both perspectives; and, through collaborative creation processes, they learn in, through, and about Documentary Theatre and Children’s Theatre by engaging in recurrent cycles of inquiry, action, and reflection. Through such processes, candidates gain deeper knowledge of the Dramatic Arts subject area, refine professional judgment, and generate new knowledge for practice.
