EdTA posts the results of Ohio based Critical Links Research.
The ultimate goal of the project, according to James Palmarini, project director and the editor of Teaching Theatre journal, is to create a network of theatre educator learning communities and a Web-based index of best teaching practices, based on the classroom research work of the participating teachers. “Critical Links asserts that the theatre teachers working with students every day are the best judge of what works and what doesn’t in the classroom and on the stage,” he said. “The project assumes that skilled educators can learn research methodology, gather and organize data, and contribute valuable information to the domain of theatre education.”
