What is experiential learning?
- Experiential education engages students in first-hand experiences in order to develop skills, clarify values, contribute to local and global communities, and make learning come alive.
- It combines academic study, community involvement and critical reflection.
- Students collaborate with others within or beyond the university engaging with public issues in ways designed to develop particular knowledge, skills and abilities.
