Undergraduate Course Launches, Graduate Course Grows


TA2404, Introduction to Applied Collaborative Techniques (or “I ACT”), is on the books for fall semester 2017. This new course is intended to provide non-theatre major undergraduate students from across campus with opportunities to experiment with practices based in collaborative theatre performance. Interdisciplinary team creativity, effective interpersonal and small-group communication, audience connection, and innovation through improvisation will be some of the themes of the course. TA 2404 is proposed to meet Pathways Areas Practice in Design and the Arts and Discourse as well as CLE area 6.

GRAD 5144, Communicating Science, is now in its 6thyear. Capped at 18 students, this 2-credit, 10-week participatory course has grown from one section per year to four sections per year since its inception in 2012. Originally aimed at helping graduate student researchers learn to communicate with non-specialist audiences, the course also has been found by students to help them communicate more effectively with their committee members, at professional conferences, and in the lab.
