Artistic Literacy: Theatre Studies and a Contemporary Liberal Education (Arts in Higher Education) (Hardcover)
In this call for action, Nancy Kindelan argues that theatre's signature pedagogy of engagement plays a significant role in helping all undergraduates achieve the aims and learning goals of a contemporary liberal education. This book serves the needs of professors, administrators, leaders in higher education, and graduate students interested in how theatre programs aid students in becoming analytical, creative, collaborative, and participating members of society capable of meeting the challenges of a fast-changing workplace.
