  ICAT Community Playdate: New Collaborative Grants  
(Research)

Each Friday, the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology convenes for a weekly playdate. During this hour, an ICAT sponsored project is presented. Join faculty, staff, and students from around campus to learn about ICAT research and events.

This presentation will feature an ICAT SEAD project that focuses on the creation of a teacher professional development program that employed theatre arts techniques to engage high school students in STEM learning. This initiative is based on the successful work of Project REAL (Reinforcing Education through Artistic Learning), an outreach project of the Barter Theater in Abingdon, VA, the state theatre of Virginia. From a learning sciences perspective, these strategies are based on the principles of embodied cognition and implicit learning for instruction across the curriculum. Through bringing together experts in theatre arts, and instructional design, the project team is striving to create an evidence-based model for enhanced student engagement and positive learning gains.

Speakers are Barbara Lockee, School of Education and Megan Atkinson, Barter Theater
