- About SCAD
Educators have the opportunity to rejuvenate and recharge their creative energies while learning new skills through a variety of educational and recreational activities in the midst of a bustling art scene.
Workshops may include demonstrations, lectures, studio work and local field trips. Participants receive individualized instruction, interact with peers, and explore a variety of hands-on methods and processes. Two-day workshops are project-based and Friday workshops are technique-driven, teaching participants new skills that can be incorporated into their classrooms. Workshops are held in SCAD Savannah facilities and participants have access to all of the university's facilities, resources and libraries.
Participation is open to educators at all grade levels who complete registration. Participants may select and pay for workshops upon receipt of the registration fee. Workshops fill quickly and early registration is encouraged.
Participants will receive a course completion record to confirm participation in the conference within thirty days of completion but will not receive an official transcript or college credit. Workshops are taught by SCAD faculty, graduate students and alumni.
Teachers who require professional learning units to maintain statewide teaching certification may receive PLUs for the successful completion of the program. A course record is issued to principals, schools or school districts upon completion of the program to verify participation. The course record can be submitted by participants to their state for professional development units pending evaluation and approval. One PLU is earned for each 10 contact hours of classroom instruction. No college credit is earned. The weeklong session includes a minimum of 20 contact hours of instruction, equivalent to 2 SDUs or PLUs*.
* A course record containing the number of instructional hours is provided to participants following the successful completion of each workshop. This record can be submitted to the applicable state for professional development units pending evaluation and approval.
