Pre Register

In our 5-day teacher training course on Drama and Self-expression in education, we will discover the power of emotions and self-expression. Participants will be introduced creative methods of self expression and describing feelings. Part of the training is focused on mind-body connection, self-awareness and the awareness of others, mindfulness, self-esteem and confidence. During the sessions and workshops, we will use the power of drama when it comes to teaching a subject and will introduce to our participants essential drama tools to be used in a classroom environment. Because we all know that Drama as an educational tool has the capacity to enhance intercultural understanding, motivation, engagement and communication.


This training is mostly a practical one and all participants are expected to participate actively to the workshop exercises. By doing so, participants will acquire experience and knowledge on how to apply these methods in their own classroom. By the end of the training sessions, participants will develop a lesson plan in groups or individually by incorporating self-awareness and drama techniques and present their work to the group.
