Professionalization Series

The Professionalization Committee provides a series of in-house events with the aim of preparing students to become professionals in the field of theater and performance studies. Areas covered include events related to demystifying the profession, which cover conferences, publishing, and the academic job search. Within the academic job search, workshops are held focused on developing a CV and teaching philosophy. We also have a series focused on applied pedagogy, in which we share best practices in the classroom including innovations in digital pedagogy, relevancy of curricular development, and classroom management. Each semester we will list planned events here—all students are encouraged to attend.
