Abstract:
Popular theatre is an innovative pedagogical strategy that has historically been used for emancipatory education, community development and to encourage discourse on sensitive health topics. The purpose of this presentation is to describe how popular theater can be adapted for use in the traditional classroom setting. Students were given the opportunity to experience the management and control of a communicable disease outbreak. Students were divided into various teams, which reflected the various roles, settings and inter-disciplinary collaborators. Each team was responsible for one scene. Informal scripts were provided, and the outbreak was enacted. Following each scene, the facilitator led a focused discussion, which assisted students to analyze the basic and new concepts, challenge assumptions, and investigate dilemmas. As a result, the students were able to synthesize and organize the basic concepts into a more complex understanding of the management and control of a communicable disease outbreak. Finally, students examined Popular Theatre as an education strategy for nurses working with community groups. The process, student outcomes and feedback will be presented. Suggestions of how this innovative educational strategy could be adapted for use with other topics will be explored.
