Dartmouth: Curricular Connections

July 12, 2018

Experiential Learning Through the Arts

With Dartmouth’s ongoing focus on the value of experiential learning in a liberal arts curriculum, the Hopkins Center is your go-to resource for active learning opportunities. Last season, 68 professors from 24 academic departments brought students to 51 different live performances and films through the Curricular Connections program.

Hop programming supports the following core elements of experiential learning, as defined by the Dartmouth Center for the Advancement of Learning (DCAL): connecting theory to practice by engaging with real-world issues and ideas; incorporating and applying diverse perspectives; building empathy and cultural intelligence; and challenging students to think critically and reflect on their learning.

If your students are required to attend a Hop event—including Visiting Artists, Dartmouth Ensembles, Theater Department productions, Films, MET Opera and National Theatre Live HD broadcasts—you are eligible for support from the DCAL/Hop Experiential Learning Fund.
