2 PM ET: A Complement to the Core: Using Co-Curricular Experiences to Fill Educational Gaps

Co-curricular offerings, including workshops, special trainings, certifications, and guest lectures, can augment core curriculum, providing a range of experiences and opportunities for our students outside of the traditional classroom environment. Unlike a full-credit course, co-curricular activities are designed and implemented to meet “in the moment needs” of students. Format, schedule, modality (online, face-to-face, or hybrid), and content need not adhere to the standard academic credit requirements, allowing for a flexibility not often possible in our formal semester-long courses. Leveraging these co-curricular activities, we connect our students with people and practices, as well as new trends and techniques from the field.

In this session, panelists will discuss ways in which they are integrating co-curricular opportunities to complement core arts management classes at their respective institutions. Specific co-curricular opportunities examined will include Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (EDIA) programs, Intimacy Direction for stage managers/arts managers, QPR trainings and certification (question, persuade, and refer, as part of suicide prevention), guest speaker series, online trainings, and the use of self- assessments (in the areas of leadership, collaboration, communication) to develop individual student development plans.

From the technical (like practice and proficiency in Excel, PowerPoint, and video editing) and practical (budgeting and grant writing) to the theoretical and complex (like expanding cultural competencies and empathy to improve collaboration and conflict resolution skills), a co-curricular complement expands student learning beyond the arts management classroom.
