III. Academic Experiential Learning at Pacific
A draft document on Academic Experiential Learning was discussed. The goal is to have 100 percent participation from undergraduates in experiential learning to make experiential learning a point of distinction at Pacific.  There is concern about class sizes, where a student may not be able to complete the number of semesters of a particular foreign language when they are not able to go abroad. A decision for implementation across the board will need to be made and administrative support has not been funded at this time. Who will be tracking experiential learning, the courses, CTL? What impact will this have on faculty? The teaching disciplines? There is an overwhelming concern of the negative effect with added workload. Will there be recognition of this towards PT? The discussion will be continued at the April 1st meeting.
