Drama teacher education: Teaching and learning through and from community

Pascoe, R.ORCID: 0000-0002-9650-892X (2010) Drama teacher education: Teaching and learning through and from community. In: Seventh International Congress of Arts and Education (IDEA) 2010, 16 - 25 July 2010, Belem, Brazil



In this paper we are exploring the concept of drama teacher education as catalyst for creating communities of drama educators – drama education as an induction into a community of drama educators. In particular, I highlight two related concepts: creating a sense of a shared learning community within the group of students; and, teaching from community – being a member of the drama education community and bringing that community into focus through the design and implementation of the drama teacher education program. Throughout this paper I interweave narratives from my 2010 students and their experiences with reflections on the pedagogical choices made in shaping this course.
