SDTN Online – Spring Summer Programme

Teaching Technical Theatre Online

With 2020/21 academic year coming to a close, SDTN’s successful online CPD sessions continue this time concentrating on the challenges of teaching online during the last year. The programme is delivered by professional teaching staff from secondary school, college and higher education institutions who share with us their challenges of teaching online during the last year. We asked them, what worked – what will you keep doing, and ultimately – what can you not replicate online, and it needs to be in person?   

We have created a series of pre-recorded & live CPD sessions focusing on the challenges on teaching performance, technical & production arts with great resources for you to use in your own practice.
