A Tale of Two Productions: Adapting Pedagogy for Experiential Courses

Drexel University, Assistant Teaching Professor

This session is a case study of two very different quarters of the same course, one fully remote synchronous and one in-person in the same year. Producing for Live Entertainment is an experience-based course designed to familiarize students with all aspects of producing a live entertainment event. But what happens when experiential courses that require extensive planning and hands on training are forced to become remote? How did students react, participate, and thrive similarly or differently in both situations? While the pandemic may end, what lessons from these pivots will inform the pedagogy of experiential learning going forward?
