In the stated learning objectives, certain promises were made. It was stated that on completion of the workshop, the student should have improved specific skills and abilities, as well as having gained new knowledge:
• Be able to practice and cogently discuss misdirection and non-linear methods.
• Be able to confidently work with the process brainstorming – visualization – presentation in relation to any given theme.
• Be able to discuss, research and experiment with related artistic fields.
Was the actual content of the course relevant to these learning objectives?
1: I do not agree at all / 10: I agree completely
Detta var ett nytt sätt att titta på vår konstform och viktig för dess utveckling.
Even when having been working with some of the above mentioned methods and processes, I got a deeper understanding for it – and I have never worked so deeply on it and at the same time so directly related to magic. Also, I experience new ways of applying them.
And a big plus was to work on the above with such a relative large group of very competent participants.
Spot on! I had high expectations after the last course and they surpassed me with a great deal!
The content of the course is very relevant to the learning objectives. Time and time again I was baffled by the well thought out exercises that gave us students so much more than one could first imagine whilst executing the exercises for the first time.
The guest lectures was also very rewarding as well as the student “TED-Talks”.
