Our Experiential Learning courses are designed to develop knowledge and conceptual understanding of topics that are specifically related to community based field work. The purpose of these courses is to support the integration of theory and practice whilst fostering personal and professional development. Through participating in organised community engagement activities, students will better understand course content and gain a broader appreciation of the topic overall.
These courses are based on an experiential learning model. Experiential education is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as “learning through reflection on doing.”
Experiential learning can exist with limited input from a teacher as it relates primarily to the process of the students direct experience. This process includes:
