Learning by doing
The U of S currently places priority on these five types of experiential learning:
- undergraduate research where students have the opportunity to conduct original research within a credit course,
- field-based instruction where the learning takes place outside of the classroom or laboratory and is an opportunity to apply and develop practical skill or conduct discipline-related research,
- community engaged learning as a method to engage students with community partners in a mutual beneficial and negotiated curricular experience,
- clinical placement or practicum as a structured educational strategy that provides for the integration of theory and practice, and
- study abroad as an inclusive category for student exchange programming or taught away activity that is offered for credit.
