Welcome to Carleton’s Experiential Education Website!

This website represents research and work done by the Teaching and Learning Council Experiential Learning Committee. It includes information about the academic foundations of experiential learning, as well as general examples and specific illustrations of how experiential learning is happening across the institution. We would like to acknowledge Dr. Nectaria Karagiozis and Dr. Sarah Todd for their significant contributions to these resources. We look forward to expanding and improving this site as we continue to support and explore experiential learning at Carleton.

The province of Ontario has identified Experiential Learning as a key strategy for post-secondary institutions and has provided issued a set of guiding principles. For information about these guidelines, along with Carleton University’s definitions and types of experiential learning (including the definitions used in CourseLeaf) and how these opportunities are being tracked in our courses and programs, please visit: https://carleton.ca/edc/teachingresources/high-impact-practices/experiential-learning/
