The course is based on creative, interactive drama work, reflection on participants' learning, and aspects of applying drama in various situations and contexts. During the course, theory of applied drama and subject specific didactics are interwoven.

The course deals with:

  • improvisation excercises
  • verbal and non-verbal communication
  • theories and practices of play and drama
  • Course structure

    Once the course has started, the online learning platform Athena is used for information, assignments and submissions.

    Teaching format

    Instruction is given in the form of lectures, seminars, enacting drama work and reflective group work.

    Participation in seminars and creative activities, individually and in groups, and participation in presentations/practical examinations are integrated aspects of the teaching, and therefore mandatory.


    The course is examined by a written essay, in English or in Swedish.
