Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Business, Education, Law and Arts
School or Department : School of Linguistics, Adult and Specialist Educ


Students will focus on expressing and communicating their understandings about human issues and experiences, through enactment of real and imagined events. Through dramatic role (voice, gestures, and dramatic movement in the performance space); purpose and context (time frames, language, place, space and mood); structure (role-play, story, scenarios and scripts, styles or forms) students will investigate various contemporary issues, actions, and consequences that have local, national and global relevance. Students will be engaged in creating, presenting and responding. Through creating dramatic performances the focus will be on control, management and synthesis of the elements and conventions of drama. Secondly, through presenting of dramatic performance students will rehearse, refine, share and perform self-devised and scripted dramatic work. Finally through responding to dramatic performance students will describe, analyse and evaluate their own and other dramatic work. Through their engagement in the historical and socio-cultural dimensions of drama, students will develop an understanding of global citizenship in their roles as educator, artist, actor and audience. Educators will also be required to familiarise themselves with curriculum documents and relevant literature and collate resources that will support the development of pedagogical strategies for teaching drama in the Arts.
