Please save the date for the Drake University Experiential Learning Showcase on April 15th 2014. The purpose of this showcase is to highlight student experiential learning activities that have been conducted throughout the academic year, as well as faculty, staff, and community partners that have made these opportunities possible. We would love to see all of your students presenting their great experiential learning opportunities! Activities may include classroom based experiences, community engagement experiences, service-learning, co-curricular activities, etc.
Unsure if you are offering an experiential reflective learning activity? According to the University:
A key element of all experiential learning experiences that meet this requirement will be structured reflection on the experience, and in order for an experience to satisfy this requirement it will meet the following three learning outcomes:
Students will be able to:
1. Reflect on the impact that engagement outside the classroom has on their understanding of liberal education, or on an academic discipline, or on important societal or personal values.
2. Integrate academic knowledge with their experiential learning.
3. Demonstrate an ability to apply knowledge to new situations.
