“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” – Albert Einstein
Using theatre as an educational tool for academia and community, the teachers training workshop is an ideal platform to assist educators seeking knowledge of theatre elements that could be applied in teaching core subjects using imagination. The training programme is designed to increase knowledge base, develop skills, promote age-specific learning, documentation, to teach how to act, direct and watch plays and learn through a different method of training.
The three day training programme, which is part of Theatre-in-Education developed by Script Peoples Theatre builds on improvisational theatre techniques that could be used to help participants engage their students in the learning process. It helps them to creatively integrate writing and performing arts into their content area of teaching. This is a unique effort to build synergy between classroom education and theatrical concepts.
This process oriented learning is also an excellent way of teaching invaluable social and life skills such as interpersonal communication, team-building, creative problem solving, leadership, critical thinking, group decision-making and self expression. The proportion of education and theatre needs to be carefully planned to fit into each specific educational development framework.
Teachers, facilitators, lecturers, functionaries of child care institutions and people who work with children, youth and trainers are eligible to participate. Accommodation at the Christ University guest house will be provided for outstation participants.
