Multidisciplinary perspectives in dance science: Health, injury and talent

7.5 university credits.

Part-time 25%.

Are you interested in exploring health, performance/talent and injury in dance from several different perspectives? Then this course is for you. Together with dance and sport science experts as well as dance educators like yourself, you will learn about how research can be done from multiple perspectives (e.g., physiological, psychological) and with different methods (e.g., qualitative, quantitative). Just as importantly, we will discuss how such research can inform practical applications in dance.

About the course

This course is for dance educators who wish to understand more about how scientific research can be done, and how it can inform dance practice (e.g., to enhance teaching strategies). We will critically discuss the nature of knowledge and how dance education can become more evidence-based.

To ensure real-world relevance, lectures and readings will be interspersed with discussions and practical workshops. The course will be delivered mostly online, with weekly meetings via Zoom. In addition, we will meet in person for a 2.5-day intensive on the GIH campus.
