    Session Description

    Members of the AU strategic plan experiential learning group have been compiling information on experiential learning as it currently exists at AU, while brainstorming ways to expand our offerings that improve access, inclusion, and interdisciplinarity. In this session members of the team will present what we know about experiential learning at AU. We will then facilitate a discussion around best practices for incorporating experiential learning into the curriculum. Participants are encouraged to share their current practices, barriers they have encountered to student participation and success, and give their insights into how we can move experiential learning forward. It is our hope that this session will also provide faculty to make connections with one another, building bridges between complementary work already happening across the schools and colleges.

    Learning Outcomes

    • Share their existing experiential learning practices to create a shared understanding of experiential learning at AU
    • Evaluate the current experiential learning landscape with an eye towards barriers to participation and how to lower them
    • Help create new opportunities for experiential learning at AU
