Stacie’s PhD is investigating the role of digital technology in pre-HE performing arts education and examining the national shortfall in digital performance capabilities and openness of students entering HE courses and industry.

Through practice based research methods and collaborating with key stakeholders, including professional companies, universities and key education providers, Stacie aims to define and theorise a pedagogic framework for effectively using digital technology within FE performing arts, encouraging innovation and skills development for both students and teachers.
