Theatre as a Vehicle for Mobilizing Knowledge in Education
Segedin, Lauren
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v18 n15 Apr 2017
In the field of education, there has been an increased emphasis on evidence-based practice. Yet, traditional dissemination methods continue to be used. Using more creative and innovative strategies to disseminate research are needed. Theatre is one such method. Stemming from the research on knowledge mobilization and theatre as a method for social change, this study aimed to understand educator's perceptions and attitudes about using theatre to disseminate research. The study's method included a Likert-scale survey with the option to add open-ended responses. Responses from the 110 educators who viewed the research-based play indicated that the use of theatre has the ability to increase the impact of research use on practitioners in education.
