  1. Thanks for your feedback everyone! Much appreciated. A repeat of the Epic theatre workshop from this year’s conference will run at Drama Vic’s Jumpstart professional learning day on Saturday 14 March 2015 for those who missed out.

  2. Thanks Justin, I really enjoyed the workshop. When you started speaking this website came to mind, but it took me a moment to realise you are The Drama Teacher. I have used this site quite a bit since I started teaching Drama, so thanks for this too 🙂

    I like the idea of presenting briefer prescribed structures like you showed us on a simple PowerPoint slide – I think that I usually write too much on handouts and the students end up reading very little of it! I have already made up some new structures for my 2015 students.

    I am looking forward to the next installment at next year’s conference – I will definitely be getting in early to make sure I don’t miss out.

  3. The workshop was a fabulous source of information. The power point theory section was excellent and informative, well presented, clear and concise. Being able to take the notes home an excellent way to prompt the memory! The workshop was great too- inventive, well resourced and interesting. It was good to jump in and have a go at puling together an ensemble performance! So all fantastic and greatly appreciated. If you were to ask me what else I wanted from the session it would be the following! I think there would have been great benefit in some of the conventions and concepts during the theory lecture being explored in a practical sense. As a way of demonstrating the theory. I would have loved to see how you and Eli teach some of these conventions. To help inspire or grow my own teachings. After the lecture a crash course in the main conventions…? Huge respect for both of you and I look forward to the next installment!

  4. Your workshop was fantastic! Your discussion around theory and the resource PowerPoint was not only relevant, but also reassured me that I am teaching the right stuff! The practical workshop demonstrated the true skills of our colleagues and that it helped me to empathise with my students around time limits!

  5. I would love that to be at the Jumpstart conference in March. I did not get to go to the conference the other week unfortunately as It clashed with other school dates, but I found last years conference invaluable.

  6. Sorry I didn’t chose your workshop! This is what is needed – practical and relevant workshops! It was a wonderful conference!

  7. I would have loved it to go 3 hours!! I am a new to teaching and new to teaching drama and in 90 minutes you helped me ‘get it’. Thankyou
