If you’re headed to USITT in Salt Lake City next week, you won’t want to miss a fantastic session led by URTA’s Vice President, Holly Poe Durbin (UC Irvine)
Teachers and students are invited to this panel discussion on teaching theatre design and technology at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The panel will include distinguished faculty, and attendees will be fully involved in the conversation about topics including:
- What type of education and skills undergraduates should seek to acquire on campus and off (and how faculty can help)
- The significant challenges in undergraduate instruction
- Mentoring for graduate training, internships and career transition
- Time off—if any—between undergraduate and graduate enrollment
- and most importantly, an open forum for Q&As.
This session hopes to further networking between undergraduate and graduate faculty on topics relevant to BAs, BFAs and MFAs.
Holly Poe Durbin, Head of Costume Design, University of California, Irvine; Jon Gottlieb, Head of Sound Design, CalArts; Tracy Nunnally, Technical Director and Head of Design and Technology, Northern Illinois University; Mark Halpin, Assistant Professor of Design at University of Cincinnati-CCM; and Sean Savoie, Resident Lighting Designer at Washington University of St. Louis.
