Explore the Power of Drama in Education

Description: Artistic activities are very important for students’ emotional, social and language development skills. These activities provide great platform for exploring theoretical and practical aspects of foreign languages;

  • stimulate authentic conversations that aim at developing conversational competence among foreign language learners;
  • increase students’ motivation, participation, confidence and fluency as well as communication through the body language;
  • promote critical thinking and social awareness and understanding;
  • increase cultural awareness;
  • teach cooperation, empathy for others, decision making skills and encourages exchange of knowledge between the students;

During this course participants will learn how drama activities can be incorporated in the curriculum material – how concepts, ideas, events, and people can be dramatized through improvisation, pantomime, and playwriting to stimulate interest, convey knowledge, gain comprehension, and improve retention.
