In “How to Win Intro to Theatre” Stephen A. Schrum shares his experiments with motivating student learning by making his theatre course into a game. He contends that educators can capitalize on millennials’ familiarity with video games, in which they reach various levels of achievement, to help learners feel a greater sense of engagement and satisfaction with their coursework.
Ed Menta approaches student engagement in a more personal way in “I Finally Saw the Greek Theatres: Impressions on Teaching Undergraduate Theatre History.” In this Note, Menta shares his deeper connection to Greek Theatre after visiting the historic physical sites.
