EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING COURSE AND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT RESOURCES
These resources for faculty and staff were developed by Professor Ashley Stirling, Vice Dean of Academic Affairs in the Faculty of Kinesiology & Physical Education and are designed for self-directed learning. Pedagogically grounded and empirically informed, the resources were created in consultation with a tri-campus working group and draw upon the collective expertise and experiences of faculty and staff across the institution. They focus on advancing the quality development and delivery of both curricular and co-curricular experiential learning opportunities. There are also a suite of student-facing modules that you may wish to incorporate into your experiential learning course or program.
Discover key considerations for an impactful learning experience.
Examine various forms and frameworks for reflection.
Learn about logistics, matching and preparation.
Review some of the administrative requirements and institutional policies and guidelines related to experiential learning.
Support inclusive student learning experiences.
Consider how to build and maintain ethical partnerships.
These editable and open source student-facing modules are to be used by instructors and staff offering experiential learning courses or programs.
REMOTE EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING RESOURCES
This page houses a range of resources available to faculty and staff as they design, implement and administer remote experiential learning opportunities. The below modules are based on and developed from the “Adapting Experiential Learning for Remote Delivery” webinar series that was held during the Summer Term 2020. Below these resources, we have also included quick links to a number of additional remote resources that may be of interest.
While these presentations and resources were initially developed as a direct response to COVID-19, these resources remain valuable for faculty and staff interested in exploring virtual and remote experiential learning in any context.
