Immerse Yourself in Cal Performances: Special Faculty Learning Experiences

April 7, 2019, 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Intended audience: 
Faculty, Graduate Students, Instructors, Post-doctoral students

In partnership with the Cal Performances Department of Artistic Literacy, we’re thrilled to announce a trio of special immersive experiences for Berkeley instructors. These programs are designed for faculty from all disciplines to engage in a performing arts experience and facilitated conversation to deepen understanding of the subject matter, draw connections between different academic fields, and discuss pedagogical potential and implications. 

Attend one performance or attend them all! Note that participants are expected to engage in both a pre- and post-performance pedagogical discussion for each show. Times listed below include discussion.

Sunday, April 7, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (7PM performance)
Sō Percussion

We will conclude our series with an event featuring Sō Percussion, a contemporary percussion quartet that thrives on reimagining percussive sound and the potential for music to produce new forms of collaboration and community. For this workshop and conversation (bookending the 7 p.m. performance at Hertz Hall), we will be focused especially on connections between the performing arts and STEM teaching. We strongly encourage attendance from faculty interested in the current national conversation around the integration of the sciences and the humanities!
