Fionn Woodhouse, Cork, Irl.: Sticky Impact – Building teaching and learning on performative practice
Based on research into the long term impact of participation in drama based workshops focusing on goal setting, this workshop hopes to investigate how we can make the performative more ‘sticky’. How can performative approaches be combined with other modes of learning, methods of teaching to allow students and teachers new pathways to learning?
Taking inspiration from the symposium question - ‘Wherein exactly lies the benefit of applying performative approaches?’ - this workshop will ask participants to play with, and reflect on, different approaches to performativity in the classroom/seminar/lecture setting, with the aim of allowing participants to create ‘sticky impact’ – impact from participation that stays with the learner.
This will be a practice based session with a focus on performative exercises and activities that have been/can be used in a teaching and learning context.
