Experience innovative teaching and learning

Experiential Education

We are connecting our students to their learning and better preparing them for career success with innovative teaching and learning approaches.

We have a diverse range of collaborative hands-on Experiential Education (EE) opportunities. Through technology enhanced learning we can offer engaging ways to learn, and flexibility with online and blended (hybrid) courses.

In the community

Experiential opportunities to work within communities gives our students hands-on experience, and helps them develop their skills so that they can make a meaningful difference. Students work with high-impact organizations through a wide range of activities, including advocacy, mentorship, consultation, community-led research projects and applied problem solving.
