Methodology guidelines describe a rationale and different approaches to teaching and researching the history of technical theatre. These guidelines will improve the training of future specialists in the field of theatre technology so they are aware of various approaches and possible solutions drawn from technical theatre history in their own and in other countries.

The focus is on target groups that have an active learning style, wanting to experience rather than to read, to work together rather than to stay in their niche field, for whom "history is a verb". The methodology guidelines will inspire and enable other fields and education programmes to develop and enhance their practice.
