LitFest & Learning: Curricular and Extra-Curricular Connections
Taken as a whole, the events and activities of LitFest 2013 intersect with and support a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular programs at the University of Dayton, including both the current general education program and the emerging Common Academic Program. Specifically, there are connections to the Humanities Base/Humanities Commons Program (how are creative expression, creative communities, and diversity essential to human identity and experience?), the thematic clusters (arts and the human experience, cross-cultural, social justice), the English 100 and 200 pilots (diverse literacies), and the CAP student learning outcomes (diversity, community, critical evaluation of the times, scholarship, and vocation). In addition, we hope to be able to partner again with the Department of Teacher Education to offer graduate credit/continuing education units to area teachers. We hope to be able to make the University Arts Series another important point of connection for the festival.
