Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning - "Learning through reflection on doing". Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience. It is a hands on approach to education that moves beyond the classroom and provides a more involved way of learning.

Student Teaching, 7. Practicums, 8. Study Abroad, 9. Professional Practice, 10. Research, 11. Service Learning, 12. Volunteering.

After you’ve identified careers of interest, obtain relevant experience. Experiential learning is a process through which students develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences outside a traditional academic setting. It is gained through work-related activities that help explore and clarify career interests and foster personal and professional growth while developing professional contacts.
