Dramatic Arts, Part 3 Specialist
Course Code: TCU20DR31
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 Specialist Additional Qualification Course builds on the theoretical and practical learning of Dramatic Arts Part 1 and Part 2 while focusing specifically on leadership theory and approaches related to drama education. Candidates acquire knowledge and skills for initiating and providing leadership–informal and formal–within the school and the larger community. Thus, the course program calls upon candidates to generate ideas and initiate activities that promote and nurture leadership within and beyond the group.
Dramatic Arts Specialist candidates employ a critical pedagogical lens to theoretical foundations and learning theories related to drama education by engaging in increasingly complex and experiential creative collaborations. At the same time, they refine instructional design and assessment through critical inquiry, dialogue, and professional collaboration, always through learning situated within a context of social justice, inclusion, and culturally relevant pedagogy and through authentic connections to theatre artists, theorists, and practices. Through recurrent cycles of inquiry, action, and reflection, candidates consolidate their identities as innovative leaders-practitioners in the field of drama education.
