Meeting Essentials

When: April 5-8, 2017
Where: Boise, Idaho USA
Theme: “Student Engagement Equals Student Success: Strategies for Teaching and Learning Anthropology”

Meeting Details

* Papers and presentations will focus on pedagogical strategies and techniques for engaging and retaining students in our discipline among the various subfields.

* Participants will be inspired to learn tools and tips from colleagues on proven instructional methods and recommended resources that connect students with material in meaningful ways resulting in greater retention, increased student success, and stronger anthropology programs at community colleges.

* In addition to 1.5 days of papers and presentations, SACCFest participants will be thrilled to experience some of the outstanding aspects of history, ethnicity, gender, identity, and revitalization in our (perhaps surprisingly) diverse state of Idaho.

* This includes our designation as one of the premier refugee relocation centers in the United States, thriving Basque (dancers in photo) and Mexican-American communities, and the proud Native American tradition of Paiute, Shoshone, and Bannock peoples.

* This cultural diversity will be highlighted throughout SACCFest in both culinary and artistic experiences participants are sure to enjoy.
