Experiential Education for course directors
Experiential education (EE) is a pedagogical approach that blends theory and coursework with concrete experience. Simply put, within the context of the learning objectives of a course or a program, EE allows students to apply what they learn to a specific problem. Courses with EE components are designed so that students, guided by Course Directors, reflect upon their experience(s) in a manner that leads students’ to deepen their understanding of theoretical principles.
