A Pedagogy Workshop on Teaching East Asian Performing Arts at Liberal Arts Colleges

In this workshop we seek to share our empirical experiences and theoretical thinking about new modes of teaching that integrate broadly construed performing arts, be it tea ceremony, music and opera, poetry chanting, or theater. We are fundamentally interested in a productive discussion of effective strategies, concrete successful examples of teaching, and construction of syllabi. As such, this workshop offers the opportunity for a mutual support among instructors who work with constraints on time and who endeavor to balance teaching responsibilities and research.

Saturday and Sunday, May 18 & 19, 2019
Kohlberg Hall, Scheuer Room
Event begins at 9:00am
