Curriculum for reflective practice in a learning-centered theatre course that explores careers in the performing arts
Undergraduate theatre programs focus primarily on the development of artistic skills, almost to the exclusion of the skills necessary for an artist to navigate the performing arts business. This capstone is a curriculum designed for undergraduate students to use reflective practice in learning-centered environments. Activities engage students in inquiry based research to explore performing arts careers and to research the skills necessary to succeed in the business. Key components in the course also include: community building, interdisciplinary education, and the creative use of technology. The course is based on the recommendations of the 1998 Boyer Commission Report on Educating Undergraduates in the Research University: Reinventing Undergraduate Education : A Blueprint for America's Research Universities.
