WORKSHOP: Using Drama in Education as a Tool for Learning in Museums and Galleries

UCL workshopThis specific course is an introduction to applied drama and specifically to drama in education, outlining ways that it can be used in museum education settings. Drama in education refers to the process of planning activities and workshops by creating imaginary worlds using theatre techniques but is very different from traditional theatre practices. It enhances self-expression, knowledge of one’s self and promotes cooperation. Through drama we can examine how people and children are integrated into society and how they interact with others. With drama in education as a tool we can plan entire workshops using museum exhibits, fairy tales, various forms of art or simply everyday facts and objects. Instructor: Argyris Karapitsanis, Teaching Fellow for Museums, Heritage and Archaeology.

Room 1A08, UCL Qatar, 2nd floor, Georgetown University building, Education City
