|International Course in Drama Communication A, 15 ECTS Credits|
|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|On completion of the course, students should be able
- to relate theories of non-verbal means of expression to practical experience and describe
possible applications of their knowledge in everyday contexts
- to account for how status and personal territory affect interpersonal communication
- to set up and analyse communicatively problematic situations and, by using their knowledge of interpersonal communication, find alternative courses of action
- by drama communication methods to use sagas and myths as sources of knowledge.
|The course comprises basic theory and practice in drama communication. The course includes teaching segments in which we test and train group forming exercises, improvisation, exercises in body language and status, practice in verbal communication, using sagas and myths as sources of inspiration, leadership and interpretation on the stage. This course has a clear communicative content, with the focus on interpersonal relationships.|
|The course has an experience-based method of working to permit the student to gain deeper knowledge of all the various elements of the course. Studies are focussed on experience oriented creative and reflective work in teacher-led and non-teacher-led forms of work. Lessons are characterised by practical work and reflection on it. Teacher-led exposition of theory is one element, but to a great extent students acquire knowledge individually and in groups. Practice and theory will be linked in the tasks set for examination. The student is required to prepare for and actively participate in lectures and group work, peer guidance of fellow students, literature seminars and examinations. Both teacher-led instruction and group work are documented.|
|Students are examined throughout the course, and the forms are scenic, oral and written. Obligatory elements during the course are such examinations as are detailed in the course guide, and the literature seminars that demand a discussion protocol. All examinations are based on the content of the instruction.
Students who have not achieved a pass on the regular examination will normally be offered four further opportunities according to this curriculum, one of which will be scheduled soon after the first examination date.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
At least one year of full time undergraduate studies. Documented knowledge of English equivalent to "Engelska B"; i.e. English as native language or an internationally recognized test, e.g. TOEFL (minimum scores: Paperbased 550 + TWE-score 4.0, computorbased 213 and internetbased 79), IELTS, academic (minimum score: Overall band 6.0 and no band under 5.0), or equivalent.
|The course is graded according to the ECTS grading scale A-F|
|The course literature is decided upon by the department in question.|
|Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus.
The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
