Registration for the 2020 National Conference: Future-Proof Your Theatre Program, taking place on September 12-13, is now open! EdTA members who renew before the event attend for free.
This is a pivotal moment for theatre education. Theatre is seeking to find its place in the dialogues surrounding race, social isolation, economic hardship, and political discourse. Since theatre teachers are expected to chart a brand-new path for themselves and students, the conference will support educators with accountable, practical solutions and ideas to use throughout the school year.
Keynote presentations are by playwright and educator Idris Goodwin, known for his critically acclaimed plays And in This Corner: Cassius Clay, How We Got On and Hype Man: A Break Beat Play and American Institutes for Research Vice President Monique Chism, an expert in education equity, supporting effective teachers and leaders, creating safe and healthy schools, and turning around low-performing schools districts.
- Practical tips, tools, and technologies for virtual teaching and performance.
- Guidance for fundraising and advocating for your program in these challenging times.
- Product showcase demos of helpful tools and services.
- Small group “deep dive” session to workshop your ideas and plans with other educators.
This conference is free for all EdTA members who have renewed or joined before September 12, 2020. Check with your school district about funding the $129 Conference fee as professional development and discover more about other benefits of EdTA membership. Register today!
