InterACT: When intense emotions and perspectives enter the classroom
When: April 6, 2017 at 3:00pm – 4:30pm
Where: 150 Younkin Success Center
Due to recent events both nationally and locally, many members of our university community have experienced discord, fear, anger, and sadness. We know that these emotions and perspectives can enter into our class interactions. We also know that although acknowledging and engaging with them can be difficult and uncomfortable, it can lead to a stronger class community and promote deeper learning. In this interactive performance-based workshop, participants will have the opportunity to explore some of the challenges we may encounter when intense emotions enter our classrooms. InterACT is a theatre-based ensemble that uses interactive techniques to assist participants in developing success strategies and problem-solving common classroom scenarios.
