Using Drama to Enhance Teaching in the Classroom – APH-D3
Alpha College of English

This 1 week course on Using Drama to Enhance Teaching is of significant benefit to teachers of students from age 10+ who wish to introduce the use of drama and improvisation in their classrooms as a way of stimulating their students interest in a range of subjects, to share ideas on best practice methodologies with colleagues from across Europe thereby improving the overall approach to retention of students interest in their schools and, as a result, the learner outcomes for their students.

The primary objectives of this 1-week Using Drama in the Classroom course are:
- to familiarise participants with key strategies for using drama in the classroom for students aged 10+
- to help develop participants’ skills in the use of improvisation in the classroom
- to help develop participants’ awareness of tools such as image theatre and the use of texts
- to help develop participants’ devise, develop and present a show for their own class
- to improve participants confidence in their own lesson delivery
- to provide an opportunity to develop and consolidate participants own language skills
- to promote awareness of contemporary Ireland
- to establish contacts between teachers from a variety of European backgrounds and facilitate future networking among these professionals
- to produce high-quality learning outcomes for participants thereby re-enforcing the capacity and international scope of their schools
By achieving these objectives we aim to assist schools to address identified needs outlined in their European Development Plan and to re-inforce the capacities and international scope of the participating organisations.

Methodology
This is a practical, hands-on, participative course which focuses on the application of drama in the classroom. The input sessions are a blend of lecture format and practical activities. Throughout the course participants are encouraged to reflect on their own practice, consider alternative practices and try out a variety of classroom activities through workshops and presentations. Participants will build up a portfolio of activities for their class and devise and develop a show of their own. The morning sessions are complemented and reinforced by a series of related afternoon cultural excursions where the participants are encouraged to develop their language skills in a more informal environment outside the classroom and further enhance their knowledge of Ireland

Format
This course on Using Drama to Enhance Teaching is a 1-week course consisting of 20 contact hours plus an extensive cultural programme which is directly linked to the morning sessions. Advice is provided on opportunities for extended Informal Learning and Personal Research related to their course on Saturday and Sunday.

Follow Up
On the final day of the course, the participants engage in a reflection session in which they are encouraged to examine benefits gained from the course and complete a course evaluation form. Participants are encouraged to keep contact via email and private social networking. Regular follow-up contact is made with the participants after completion of the course. The trainers are available for follow-up advice and support at all times.
