FLC Topic: Experiential Learning 

Start date: January 2013

Experiential learning potentially addresses a number of priorities both at Xavier University and in higher education generally, including an increased emphasis on education for sustainability, decreasing the costs of higher education, promoting student-centered learning, preparing students for a changing economy and job market, and promoting our institutional citizenship.  Experiential learning has a variety of forms, including problem-based learning, project-based learning and place-based learning and can be used in most disciplines.  Participants will work on developing a new course or modify an existing course with a significant experiential learning component.
