Other Research 
2018: MICHAELIDES - LE BELICARD, M., Winner of the Skema Innovation Prize. The Business Communication Through Drama Course.  Winner of the Skema Innovation Prize. The Business Communication through Drama course is designed to help students further develop their English language skills as well as acquire professional competences through the medium of drama. After 15 hours of tuition delivered by English lecturers and an expert in theatre studies, the course culminates in a full-scale theatre production composed of a selection of 8 plays, introducing diverse job interview situations inspired by students’ research, experience or imagination and entirely scripted by students. Following a marketing campaign designed by the students including a charity fundraising on the night of the show, it attracted a large audience composed of SKEMA students and staff.   [Teaching and Learning Scholarship]
