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.
