History Information:

Provisional approval 3/5/04 11/5/03 CC did not approved and voted to send this back to the discipline for clarification on the GER, concurrent or co-req, assessment information and addition of the following statement to the description "participation in other than performing".

Assessment
and Goals
:

Goals: To give students experience in the production elements of a theatre production. Assessment: Satisfactory completion of assigned production related tasks.

- Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

There is no concurrent or coreq requirement. TH1060 Production Experience involves only a name change from the confusing Theatre Practicum. The course has never carried a GER designator because there is no artistic performance involved.

 

We feel that this course does not meet the spirit of the GER requirement. It is to give credit to individuals doing some aspect of Theatre production other than performing, such as dressing, maintaining the costumes, sweeping the stage, focusing the lights, etc.

 

PEOPLE IN THE THEATRE EXPERIENCE CLASS AND STAGECRAFT HAVE PRACTICUM HOURS TO FULFILL AND THEY GET THE CLASSES MIXED UP.
