Editorial: Glocalisation of drama education: A glimpse from Hong Kong perspective

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this issue of DaTEAsia we have articles contributed by the drama education experts and practitioners from Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Taiwan. Readers will have a chance to compare the different objectives, application models, strategies of their practices and projects; as well as the challenges and opportunities. Their researches and praxis are part and parcel of the “glocalisation” (Robertson, 1995) process of drama pedagogy, revealing the struggles and dialogue of the local contexts and cultures with this globalising teaching trend. By providing the readers with an insider understanding of these efforts, we hope the local educators and practitioners are able to promote drama education in their respective roles.
