Techniques in Performance Pedagogy is designed for graduate students to address the unique needs of teaching theatre performance at the college level and beyond. Students will examine various training methods used in university training programs (in a BA, BFA or MFA). Students will formulate their own style and teaching philosophy as they develop lesson plans, create innovative pedagogical exercises, conduct warm-up sessions, coach actors and develop methods of assessing performance work. In addition, students will create and refine application materials such as a statement teaching philosophy, cover letter and CVs in order to be competitive in the academic job market.
The course does not have an in-person final. They have a final project which is turned in on the last day of the semester.
