Who can participate in Creative Field Trips?
Creative Field Trips are open to ASU faculty and students. Creative Field Trips are booked by a current faculty member for a specific date and time for their course.
Can I request a customized Creative Field Trip?
Absolutely! We understand that every course has unique needs and learning objectives. We are open to collaborating with you to create a customized field trip program that aligns with your specific requirements. We can adapt the content, duration, and focus areas to suit your goals.
How long do Creative Field Trips usually last?
The duration of the Creative Field Trips may vary depending on the selected program. On average, most trips are around 45 minutes to an hour. Creative Field Trips all take place at the Tempe campus within the Digital Maker Studio at the Creativity Commons.
What if my class is online? Can I still request a Creative Field Trip?
At this time, in-person Creative Field Trips only happen at the Tempe campus at the Digital Maker Studio within the Creativity Commons. However, we do offer faculty consultations and specialized workshops for online and hybrid courses.
Do students or faculty need to have any prior experience or knowledge in the specific creative area prior to the field trip?
No prior experience is necessary to participate in our Creative Field Trips. Our programs are designed to cater to beginners as well as students with varying levels of experience. Our creative consultants will provide introductory sessions and guidance to ensure everyone can participate and learn.
What materials or equipment are required for the Creative Field Trips?
Required materials will depend on the specific needs of the course. All equipment will be provided within the Digital Maker Studios including computing and software needs. In some cases, students will need to request access to specific software or tools prior to the workshop. We strive to ensure our programs are accessible to all students and learners so we will work with your course to ensure all necessary materials and equipment are readily available.
