Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is an engaged learning process whereby students “learn by doing” and by reflecting on the experience. Experiential learning activities can include, but are not limited to, hands-on laboratory experiments, internships, practicums, field exercises, study abroad, undergraduate research and studio performances.
Well-planned, supervised and assessed experiential learning programs can stimulate academic inquiry by promoting interdisciplinary learning, civic engagement, career development, cultural awareness, leadership, and other professional and intellectual skills.Learning that is considered “experiential” contain all the following elements:

  1. Reflection, critical analysis and synthesis.

  2. Opportunities for students to take initiative, make decisions, and be accountable for the results.

  3. Opportunities for students to engage intellectually, creatively, emotionally, socially, or physically.

  4. A designed learning experience that includes the possibility to learn from natural consequences, mistakes, and successes.
