An Online Learning Design Framework for the Creative Disciplines:
Technology-Enabled Creative Learning (TECL)
by kadenze.com

As teachers of the arts in the digital era, we are compelled to adopt ever-evolving mindsets when designing creative arts classes in the virtual space. This challenge will resonate long beyond the current COVID-19 pandemic.

While human interaction remains irreplaceable in the performing arts, we are tasked with finding new ways to innovate the teaching of theatre through new technology. To best facilitate learning the complex creative processes involved with the arts, teachers must transcend the limitations of a single computer screen:

That’s why TEFO is excited to have Dr. Brad Haseman speak with us live from Brisbane to share the online learning pedagogical framework he has been developing at Kadenze, called Technology Enabled Creative Learning (TECL). We believe that this framework will unlock each teacher’s potential in innovating unique technological methods of teaching the arts in order to be more engaging with their students.

We welcome all fellow applied theatre practitioners, drama teachers and artists in Hong Kong to come join us for this seminar and learn more about how we can evolve our practice for the future together.
