Goethe-Institut Australian National Conference for teachers of German: German on Stage

German on Stage, in combination with the International Year of Languages, will showcase and explore a variety of methods for teaching German in Australia. The focus will be on elements of drama, role play, theatre and film which can enrich and foster general methods used in the German classroom. The conference will include examples of best practice, Landeskunde and papers on research findings.

Three keynote speakers will be in attendance.

  • Birgit Oelschläger is a drama and theatre pedagogue who works as a trainer and teacher in Berlin. Birgit will focus on how to include theatre elements in teaching German.

  • Susanne Wodraschke has just completed a documentary about young Germans on the boarder to Poland. Susanne will talk about the new docx series and the way documentaries are useful material for intercultural aspects in language teaching.

  • Andrew Ferguson, president of the Modern Language Teachers’ Association of Victoria, will present the big picture – languages advocacy.

The conference package includes all workshops and seminars, morning and afternoon teas, lunches, conference dinner, reception drinks, evening entertainment and airport transfers. Accommodation is not included and must be paid for separately.
