Since activation is the key to learning effectiveness the question of activating audiences is very relevant for education. Along with investigating the various possibilities such as games, you will learn tools from theatre for the guidance of student activity and enhancement of their mental activity using ‘Movies in the Mind’ and ‘Arcs of Tension’. A new method to analyse learning objectives will provide the opportunity to develop short practical exercises.
