Drama is a performing art, an outlet for self-expression, and a way of learning.

Location: Seville | Duration: 5 days

Summary

 

Current research and education tendencies bet on an educational model that boosts multiple intelligences (Howard Garner, 1988) as well as those related to emotional intelligence (Goleman,1995) through which students are engaged in a motivating and meaningful learning process.

In this sense, drama-related and expressive pedagogies applied to education are innovative tools with proven results and aimed at encouraging an integral education of human beings that require professionals properly trained in this area.

Basing on that, the aim of this workshop is for teachers to acquire either competences and abilities to coordinate and energize groups in terms of emotional management in a fun and creative way or drama and expressive tools to be applied in different educational contexts. All these would be useful to teach contents in the most appropriate way as well as to help students develop their emotional intelligence. The implementation of these techniques will boost participation and motivation in the classroom, cooperative spirit, conflict resolution skills in-situ and reinforcement of the teacher-student relationship, among others.

Methodology

The approach will be practical, enjoyable, creative and expressive. The body will play an important role in the workshop as well as the analysis of reality and the concerns of the group.

We will mainly work in assembly and small groups, encouraging reflection and creativity in order to increase the options and alternatives for action. We will also make use of games, drama and art techniques and we will analyse the exhibitions of each module and group dynamics.

Additionally, a course follow-up strategy will be proposed to all the teachers in order to monitor the implementation of good practices in their schools based on the knowledge, skills, and competencies acquired during this workshop. Through their commitment and active participation to share new competencies, they will be able to build professionally-oriented support networks in their communities, making, at the same time, their work and contribution more visible on a local scale.
