Performance based Pedagogies
February 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC-4
This session will help you interrogate performance-based pedagogies (PBP) in that demand that students embody their learning so as to enact a meaning-making process that is both holistic and powerful (Warren & Fassett, 2004).
Danielle’s current research expands across many fields and disciplines including educational studies, feminist and trans research and performance and theatre. Her doctoral work, “Acting out gender: Interrogating gender through performance-based-pedagogies in high school classrooms”, uses performance-based pedagogies to examine the experience and understanding of gender for high school students, and to creatively explore the construction, embodiment, reproduction, performance and subversion of gender identities. Her study, through Augusto Boal’s performance-based pedagogy, Theatre of the Oppressed (TO), explores the ways in which participants understand and respond to their gendered bodies and interrogate both external and internal experiences of gender.
