Many of our students report that after paying for tuition, room and board, they cannot buy books or sometimes even food. About 15% of Ohio State students reported that they lacked reliable access to affordable, nutritious food from week to week. In this interactive performance-based workshop, participants will engage in discussion about how financial instability and food insecurity impact students in our classrooms. How can instructors consider these realities in course management, structure, and even content-building? InterACT is a theatre-based ensemble that uses interactive techniques to assist participants in developing success strategies and problem-solving common classroom scenarios.
