Faculty Experiential Learning Resources

Experiential learning is the process of applying theory, knowledge, and skills to 'real world' situations through sustained active engagement in planning, executing and reflecting on tasks that include genuine accountability and impact.  Experiential learning opportunities focus on the contextual aspects of knowledge.  The process of experiential learning results in an opportunity for deeper and expanded learning not typically available through the traditional classroom setting. The nature of experiential learning is such that it requires sufficient time in the learning environment for knowledge and skills to develop and sufficient time to critically evaluate what has been learned.  The term "sufficient time" is subject to interpretation but, where credit is earned, "sufficient time" will be at least 40 hours per credit unit.  Experiential learning opportunities involve hands-on experience and require both analysis and significant reflection. (Definition approved by ELOC April 2013.)
