Curricular Connections Guide

The Curricular Connections Guide is a new initiative at the Quick Center for the Arts this school year. Designed to serve as a resource for Fairfield University faculty and staff, the Guide is created to foster connections between Fairfield classes and Quick Center performances. Included are particular events we feel are of direct relevance to courses being offered on campus. However we believe that our wide array of programming enhances every student and faculty member’s experience on our campus by bringing diverse perspectives and voices that enrich our lives through more well-rounded experiences.

How can you use the CCG to enhance your students’ experiences?

  • Encourage your students to attend an arts event and provide extra credit for attendance
  • Encourage students to do reflective writing about their experience with the performance and how it connects to their learning in the classroom
  • Utilize the performance as a resource to enhance your course instruction
  • Schedule an in-class discussion or lecture led by a visiting artist or a FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY faculty or staff member

The Guide lists arts events in chronological order; the entry for each event includes time, location, and ticket information, event description, and curricular connections. It is the intent of the Quick Center for the Arts in developing the Curricular Connections Guide to engage Fairfield University faculty in our programs by forming meaningful, logical links between the substance of academic courses and the content of Quick Center events.
