Experiential Learning Course Listing - Application
The H&S Experiential Learning Course Listing developed out of information provided in a fall 2010 survey that the Faculty Working Groups in Experiential Learning conducted to identify existing courses. That survey provided an important baseline for the work of the permanent Steering Committee on Experiential Learning, as it further expands the Course Listing.
The Course Listing is designed as a kind of “database” of experiential learning courses that will help students identify those academic, credit-bearing experiences where they will have the opportunity to go outside of the classroom and apply theory to practice in unstructured and uncertain environments, with close faculty mentorship. It will also help provide networking opportunities for faculty who currently offer (or are interested in offering), experiential learning courses. Finally, it will provide information for alumni and donors about the kinds of intensive academic experiences that H&S offers students across a range of disciplines.
Faculty interested in having their courses included in the Course Listing can complete an application (coming soon!) describing the course and how it meets the experiential learning criteria (see the rubrics for each model in the menu to the left). The Committee will review applications, assess the degree to which courses meet the criteria outlined in the rubrics, incorporate new courses in the listing if they meet those criteria, and provide feedback to faculty.
