Experiential learning

Experiential learning is hands-on, real-life learning. It blends theory and practice in a cycle that is dependent upon continuous reflection by students, with their conclusions being adjusted as new information and learning is discovered. Through experiential learning experiences, students develop the ability to:

  • Think independently
  • Function without sufficient data
  • Change thinking or processes mid-course
  • Negotiate
  • Reflect, inquire, and ask questions
