 Faculty are encouraged to consider using SACAD to provide out-of-the-classroom opportunities to engage students. Here are a few ways to integrate SACAD into the classroom experience:

  1. Encourage students to present creative works in the form of projects, recitals, plays, performances, demonstrations, presentations, etc. for in-class credit.
  2. Provide extra credit or other incentives for attending relevant activities, writing articles for publication, creating web communications, or taking photos/film clips of SACAD events. 
  3. Allow students to write reactions to present in class, or hold a class discussion of ideas and inspirations.
  4. Require students to attend SACAD events in lieu of class time. 

The SACAD Committee welcomes suggestions for future activities.  Contact Leslie Paige with questions or suggestions.
