James Wilson on episode 194 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast shares about Interactive Theatre in the classroom.
Quotes from the episode
Humans are hardwired for learning by doing.
Everybody in everyday life is an actor … it shouldn’t be deemed an untouchable art form.
I haven’t come across a medium of teaching which attaches a higher state of emotion to learning experiences.
