'Experiential Learning' is education structured through interdisciplinary, project based activities, supported by undergraduate research.
Our work with students at Chandler Gilbert Community College is based on providing the largest number of students a foundation in the 'Discovery of Scholarship.' Students working across fields interact and provide ideas, concepts, disciplinary lenses, and the opportunity to make interdisciplinary connections.
Our framework for experiential learning is based on several objectives common to successful experiential learning projects:
A sense of learning outcomes, structure of laboratory spaces, common expectations for applications across disciplines, and demonstration of student learning through reflection and presentation.
