Drama Educators' Network Professional Learning Day

This is a day of enriching professional learning from a drama lens. All member schools are welcome, even those not planning to be part of the CISDF Drama Festival. There’s a hosted dinner and an opportunity to view an exciting performances at North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company. Past workshop sessions with teaching artists from Stratford have included fostering students’ ideas and helping them develop new plays in class, and working with a choreographer and creative movement director, to explore new ways to stage a piece.

Professional Learning Day 2024

The 2024 Drama Educators' Network Professional Learning Day will be held October 4, 2024 at Stratford Festival. Stay tuned for details and registration.


Professional Learning Day 2023 at Stratford Festival

CIS Ontario drama educators joined their network peers on September 29, 2023, at Stratford Festival to participate in teacher-focused workshops with Stratford artists, network with drama colleagues from CIS Ontario member schools and assist in planning CISDF 2024. The group toured Stratford Festival facilities, enjoyed dinner at a local restaurant and saw a Stratford show of their choice: Grand Magic, Rent or Monty Pythons' Spamalot.
