At EdTA’s National Conference, educators can sharpen their skills and
expand their body of knowledge through workshops and master classes
taught by experts and professionals. These sessions cover a wide
variety of topics including theatre curriculum, choreography, script
analysis, and technical theatre.
Workshops are 90-minute, hands-on learning sessions.
Professional Development Intensives
The Educational Theatre Association’s Professional Development Intensives
(PDIs) are one- or two-day interactive opportunities
for theatre educators to develop their arsenal of professional skills on
a specific topic. PDIs are in-depth crash courses taught by experts and
thought-leaders in the field of theatre education. Topics range from
directing a musical to curriculum development to stage
lighting. Participation in a PDI allows attendees to
advance a graduate degree or earn credit required for continuing
Confirmed PDIs for 2015 will be posted on the Professional Development Intensives page.
