Skill Session: Short Program “Facilitation”
We welcomed Mr. Masanori Fujita (actor/producer at Ongakuza Musical), the instructor of Skill Session, as an instructor for the program. He introduced us to an experiential 4.5-hour session concerning the theme “Creating a Space” by using techniques from musicals. The instructor and participants collaboratively explored what a learning space should be in the new age. The participants learned four kinds of icebreakers and practiced self-introductions, which had been highly appreciated in the online course. They also practiced how to project their voices through one-on-one lessons with actors from Mr. Fujita’s Ongakuza Musical. They learned about correct posture and how to walk beautifully and experienced an improvisation, all immediately applicable to their teaching. For the finale, all participants acted out a scene together.
