Welcome to our Experiential Learning Page!

We are members of the 2016-2017 Council on Learning and Teaching Excellence.  This is an initiative at VIU to engage faculty in significant and impactful projects related to advancing their knowledge and skills in enhancing student learning. The primary goal of the Council is to advance a culture of teaching and learning at VIU through projects focused on some key areas.

We engaged this year in redesigning our classes to incorporate experiential learning practices that are suitable for our disciplines and courses. Working together, we learned a lot about the challenges and benefits of using Experiential Learning to create conditions for student responsibility and engagement in our courses.  Explore this site to learn more about what we did, and how you might do something similar yourself!
