Using Technology to Foster Experiential Learning

December 7, 2017 at 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Location:422 Dunton Tower

Facilitators: Renata Chiaradia (EDC), Eileen Harris (EDC), Tamara Vaughan (EDC) and Kim Loenhart (EDC)

Applying theory to real-world experiences is essential to enhancing students’ academic engagement. Experiential learning helps learners reflect on an experience and engage in the process of the conceptualization, by making connections between theories and concepts explored in the course and real-life applications. Experiential learning can and should also be encouraged in online settings, such as cuLearn.

This session focuses on using technology, including cuLearn, to foster experiential learning. We will review experiential learning and discuss its importance in creating meaningful learning experiences for students. We’ll also explore a variety of experiential learning ideas and ways technology can assist in their implementation.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Explain key concepts that inform experiential learning
  • Identify cuLearn activities and other technology tools that could facilitate experiential learning
  • Develop and assess an idea for experiential learning in your course with the use of technology

Prerequisites: cuLearn basics and a keen interest in integrating experiential learning with technology in class
