The Eugenio María de Hostos Drama in Education (DiE) Institute: Using Theater to Enhance Teaching

Congratulations to Professors Sarah Hoiland, assistant professor in the Behavioral and Social Sciences department and Tere Martinez,  adjunct lecturer in the Humanities department, for being awarded a grant from Bringing Theory to Practice funded by the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U). Below is a brief description of the purpose of the grant.

The Drama in Education (DiE) Training Institute at Hostos Community College and DiE Workshops at Patterson Houses will train faculty, teachers, community-based organization directors, and community leaders in New York City on how to use DiE as an effective teaching tool and as a mechanism to deepen the relationship between drama educators and community partners and effect community change. The DiE Institute will amplify the initial work of the Bridging Theory to Practice-sponsored Community Action for Dialogue, Reflection, and Energy (CADRE) Project and Professor Tere Martínez’s subsequent educational theatre program Roots and Action/ Raíces y Acción.
