February 24th - CRLT (Center for Research on Learning and Teaching) Players - Click Here to RSVP
The CRLT Players Theatre Program uses a diverse array of performance arts to spark dialogue among faculty, graduate students, and academic administrators on issues of multicultural teaching and learning and institutional climate. The repertoire of traditional and interactive theatre is built on a strong foundation of research, and stories are told with a mix of comedy and drama designed to portray the complexities and challenges of academe and to prompt reflection rather than defensiveness among audience members.
Through performances, workshops, seminars, and individual consultations, the CRLT Players Theatre Program provides educators and administrators with an innovative and dynamic approach to sparking dialogue, promoting inclusivity, and effecting positive change inside and outside the classroom. At the heart of the program is the CRLT Players, a troupe of local professionals and student actors. Using a solid foundation of research, the CRLT Players develop and present provocative vignettes in order to engage audience members in thinking and talking about issues of pedagogy, diversity, and inclusion.
The CRLT players will perform the Tenure Sketch: The Fence at MSU on February 24th in both the morning and afternoon. 'The Fence' focuses on a tenure meeting discussion at the executive committee level of a science department. The sketch poses questions regarding the fairness of some common issues and dynamics in tenure discussions and portrays the subtle ways that the gender can affect a committee’s interpretation of the candidate’s scholarship and productivity. Following the sketch, the audience dialogues with the actors, who stay in character. A trained facilitator guides the discussion and provides professional expertise and research-based information about the topic at hand.
