In collaboration with the University of Teacher Education (HEP-Vaud), the Manufacture has since 2009 offered continuing education days intended for teachers.
Organised on the premises of the Manufacture, these courses adopt a practical approach to the theatre, envisaging it as a pedagogical tool. They offer teachers different perspectives for exploring a text with their class in both literary and documentary contexts. They will also be given concrete tools, learned through experimentation, for understanding different forms of contemporary theatrical expression. The Manufacture also hopes in this way to encourage class visits to the theatre, through the intercession of insightful teachers.
In addition, this offer includes a day’s training in the art of oratory, where the tools of the actor are used to improve subjects’ public speaking skills.
These courses are offered to all teachers in the Canton de Vaud, especially to those teaching in the Secondary.
