Theatre In Education Links

“Theatre in Education (TIE) is a process in which it includes all the interactive theatre/drama practices that help aid the educational process. As TIE is used, new strategies and objectives for using theatre as an educational tool emerge.” (Wikipedia)

Wikipedia site on Applied Drama, an umbrella term that modern TIE falls under.

Modern TIE

Useful newspaper article by The Gaurdian about the state of modern TIE. 

“As theatre education managers challenge themselves and satisfy funders with a seemingly constant race to think of more and more exciting ideas, I wonder whether we are also compromising a very basic, and now very unfashionable use for theatre in education – that of using performance as a way of directly promoting positive social change.” (The Gaurdian).
