The Hanover College Modern Languages and Cultures Department is scheduled to host the Indiana chapter of the American Association of Teachers of German’s annual immersion workshop. The one-day event will be held Saturday, Sept. 16.

The workshop, “Theaterpädagogik,” will focus on the incorporation of theatre into German education.

In addition, the workshop will include the exploration of the College’s expansive campus for performance inspiration.

“Theaterpädagogik” will be held from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Hanover’s Science Center. A buffet lunch will be provided in the J. Graham Brown Campus Center.

All German educators – past, present and future – are welcome to attend. Online registration will be available through Sept. 10 and registration will be available at the workshop.
