Experiential Learning Modules
These modules will help you navigate your experiential learning opportunity. Each module focuses on a different aspect of experiential learning. You can consider your responsibilities when engaged in experiential learning; gain a deeper understanding of your strengths, values and interests; learn about the value of reflection; set goals and create a personal learning plan to ensure you develop the competencies that matter to you; and reflect on those competencies while learning how to speak about them on resumes and in interviews.

University of Toronto Resources
In addition to your course instructor or program coordinator, there are various resources at the University of Toronto to support and advise you as you undertake this experience.
For a deeper understanding of the University’s approach to experiential learning, you may want to review Rethinking Higher Education Curricula: Increasing Impact through Experiential, Work-Integrated, and Community-Engaged Learning: A White Paper for the University of Toronto.
If you require an accommodation related to an experiential learning opportunity, you may wish to connect with one of the accessibility services offices at the University of Toronto. Staff at these offices will be able to advise you on the disclosure of your accommodation requirements, as well as support you through the process of determining and negotiating effective accommodations for your individual circumstances.
All U of T campuses (St. George, Mississauga and Scarborough) have a service for students with disabilities. While they work independently, all three offices collaborate to ensure that the services work within the frameworks of common objectives.
The mission of accessibility services offices at the University of Toronto is to provide students with a network of resources to succeed at the University of Toronto, both inside and outside the classroom. These offices strive to create a safe and comfortable community for students where they can navigate their disability and related barriers, facilitate peer support and interactions, and provide various academic and social opportunities.
Accessibility Services uphold the Ontario Human Rights Code, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and the University of Toronto’s Statement of Commitment to Persons with Disabilities.
