Welcome to Technical Direction. This course will give you an opportunity to learn and practice the skills necessary to be a professional theatrical technical director. To make this practice as close to the real world as possible, the class will be structured using the problem-based learning model. In small groups, you will work on several problems over the course of the semester, each one based on a real show and real scene design. The most important skills you will learn are how to work on a team and how to direct your own research.
