The project explored the ways in which accessible technologies could be applied in a non-technological environment, such as the training and development of basic theatre acting techniques in order to enhance and deepen student learning and growth.  They developed a new approach to character conception and creation that impacted on the skills development of students, as well as on a personal level (as personality, identity, context and all aspects of the human being is inextricably linked to the process of characterisation and theatrical performance).

Their approach positioned students as active and responsible participants in their own learning processes and thus encouraged students to progress from other-regulation and close supervision to self-regulation and self-directed learning.

Drama proudly congratulates them on their prestigious accomplishment!
