[TEST] NEH Institute 2018: Digital Technologies in Theatre and Performance Studies
This institute is aimed at college and university faculty eager to integrate digital technologies into their curricula, and who would like to gain a deeper understanding of the technologies and techniques to make this possible. The program assumes no prior expertise in digital media. Through presentations and hands-on workshops with some of the country’s leading experts on digital performance and scholarship, the institute’s participants will gain valuable techniques and experience in how best to integrate digital methods and tools in teaching theatre studies and performance practice.
The first week focuses on the impact of digital technologies on performance scholarship, and the second, on digital performance practices. Both weeks balance lectures, seminars, and hands-on workshops. Participants will leave the institute with specific exercises, lesson plans, and references to support continued development in their classrooms and their home institutions.
The institute was jointly initiated by the leadership of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) and the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR).
