Integrating Knowledge and Skills Through Experience
Students study and practice the principles and strategies of experiential learning. Through direct experience and reflection on that experience, they learn to recognize and articulate their knowledge and skills, to apply the knowledge and skills they learn in one context to another context, and to determine what knowledge and skills they need to develop to meet their goals.
Learning Goals: By the end of the course, students should be able to
- Apply knowledge and skills in new, authentic contexts.
- Gain new knowledge and develop new skills to successfully engage in unfamiliar tasks and activities.
- Integrate and use the deepened knowledge and skills as well as the newly gained knowledge and skills to continue to learn in their academic programs.
- Articulate how and what one learns across a range of contexts.
