The Education Commission meeting for 2007 took place in Vancouver, Canada, August 15th – 18th and was hosted by CITT (The Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology)/ICTS OISTAT Centre and the University of British Columbia.
The meeting was held in conjunction with The CITT/ICTS Rendez-Vous 2007 Annual Conference and included a join CITT/OISTAT sessions, that were attended by many Canadian educators and practitioners.
The CITT/ICTS/OISTAT Education Forum examined the effectiveness of theatre department productions as a tool for teaching design and technology. Presentations by the international OISTAT delegates and the Canadian hosts explored the methods used in Canada and around the world to educate theatre students. The presentations were followed by discussions on the relationship between performance, technical production and design as they relate to the learning environment.
The Education Commission open session under the main theme: Ties to the International Community addressed globalization in education, academic exchange programs, international research projects and cyber learning projects.
The business sessions of the Education Commission addressed the next Commission meetings for 2008, 2009 and 2010, as well as the Commission projects, especially Scenofest. The next Commission meeting will be held in the beginning of June in Helsinki, Finland. There was a very productive conversation on the program of the meeting.
Since the memories and the impressions of the PQ and Scenofest’07 were still fresh and strong, the discussion on Scenofest was very fruitful. There was a unanimous opinion that Scenofest’07 was a success. The delegates provided feedback about their students experience at Scenofest, recaptured about the program’s strengths and weaknesses and came up with new and inspiring ideas for the next edition of Scenofest.
The Education commission meeting in Vancouver was a success. Most sincere THANK YOU to the hosts from CITT and the University of British Columbia and especially to Monique Corbeille, Kathleen Irwin and Alison Green for their dedicated work.
