DE EXPERTEN IV
|16:30 - 18:30||
Little research has been done on how to create a healthy balance between process and product in arts education. Yet researchers, artists, teachers, teaching artists, teacher trainers, students and audiences alike recognise the need for such a balance: without a high-quality process, it is impossible to achieve a high-quality product. And a product of a poor or dubious standard will, at best, be overlooked by spectators if they have an emotional connection to the artist(s) or if they know that a valuable (social) process did precede the product. The MoE 2.0 doctoral research project explores how the dramatic-inquiry approach to learning and teaching Mantle of the Expert, a form of process drama, can be enriched into a methodology in arts education for creating non-scripted theatre performances with young audiences and thus create a harmony between the artistic process and product.
