Experiential learning: The Challenge of the Year

 

The 2020 Digital Summer Theatre event

This year, the event was held online in line with the current lockdown restrictions. This new reality opened up for new approaches to story-telling and community based performing arts.

 

Using drama as a pedagogical tool

​The Summer Theatre event is hosted by one of the learning centres where participants in the Pedagogy for Change programme do their training – Juelsminde Day School. This school has a long tradition of using drama as a pedagogical tool, harvesting many valuable experiences through practising and performing drama together.
