Applied Performance: Sexual Consent
Exposes students to the field of Applied Theatre and experiential education using Speak About It’s theatrical consent education as a model. Coursework includes humanizing facilitation and discussion skills, discovering and testing applied theatre models, and the creation and implementation of education and advocacy workshops around the topics of sexual consent, identity, and community, and the factors that complicate them all. The resulting workshop will be performed at Drew (and potentially beyond), reaching college students who have seen Speak About It’s programming. A substantial percentage of the class grade is based on the quality of students’ community work both in and outside of Drew and their ability to connect that work to the course’s academic content. May be repeated twice.

About Community-Based Learning Courses
CBL classes foster the ability to connect academic learning with action in the world by working with offcampus community organizations. They seek to benefit their partner organizations and our shared community by addressing a need or strengthening a capacity that serves the common good. In a CBL course, you apply what you learn to real-world problems, providing a “mini-internship” that gives you the opportunity for career exploration, experience working in diverse communities, and the chance to help build your professional network. All CBL classes have been approved as Immersive Experiences.
