Date:            Monday, May 3, 8:00 am–12:00 pm

This course introduces education researchers to the expanding field of performance practices and related research on the performatory learning model. It is designed for graduate students and faculty exploring interdisciplinary approaches to education and education research, particularly those interested in creativity, the arts and performing arts, cognitive-social learning, and the interplay of in-school and outside-of-school learning environments. The goals of this course are to (1) introduce theatrical performance, particularly improvisation, as an effective tool for building socially and emotionally supportive and productive learning environments; (2) generate interest in new research that examines the value of performance for education; (3) link social-emotional learning with the expanding field of performance studies; (4) provide a forum for examining both the chasms and the interrelationships between learning in formal and informal settings and how they are researched and evaluated.
