Drama across the curriculumr by Ian Pike

his is a workshop aimed at teachers of any subject or age group. Using theatre techniques to explore any topic, this session is designed to show how it can be possible to engage young people in active learning through drama and story.

A practical session but one that will not require acting skills or performance, the aim is for teachers to be able to take some basic techniques back to the classroom and adapt them to their own curriculum needs.

Ian Pike

Born in Southern Africa, I now live in the United Kingdom. I have worked professionally as an actor, a comedian, a voice over artist, an IB examiner, a university lecturer, a writer of children’s books, a director and producer.

Mostly though I have been a freelance scriptwriter. I am currently working full time for The International School’s Theatre Association (ISTA) as the Assistant Director. I have been an ISTA artist for over 24 years, was on the board of trustees for ten years and served as vice-president. I am unbelievably proud to be an honorary life member.

I have been lucky enough to have worked with so many amazing young people across the world. I have been to most corners of the globe to work in schools, both with students and their teachers and still find everyone involved in International education utterly inspirational. I love bringing my work in comedy and TV drama into the theatre and the classroom and seeing what happens.
