MOOC as a complement to training interventions
At FAI-AR, we also use the MOOC in addition to specific training courses: for example, students in applied dramaturgy course view the MOOC before they come. They thus acquire common references and vocabulary which then allow them to go further during the training.
We offer many specialized internships in the fields of creation in public space: new dramaturgies of the arts in public space, technical production in public space, vertical dance, acting in the city, special effects, elaboration and construction of models… these training courses can be adapted to a specific demand, and can be articulated with the follow-up of the MOOC Create in public space. They can take place in French or in English, in Marseille or in your premises.
