Courses in Using Theatre in Education (TIE) have been given by The Commedia
School since 1991. The courses are often offered by cooperating
institutions and provided by The Commedia School. These courses have
been a regular part of the curriculum in the Drama Communications
Department of Linköpings University in Sweden. Theatre in Education as a
line of study is a part of the cooperative agreement between The
Commedia School and The College of Neo-humanist Studies in Sweden. Other
cooperating institutions include Visao Futuro in Tatui, Brazil, and the
Zonnenlicht Foundation in Den Bosch, Holland.
This course gives both theoretical and practical experience in using a
theatrical approach to any educational situation. The course applies the
basic principles of The Commedia School to any course material in any
educational setting from early childhood to professional and technical
studies and including, of course, primary and secondary school settings.
