TLISI 2018: Experiential (Service) Learning: Action Labs - May 23, 2018
Experiential learning consists in gaining knowledge through experiences which allow students to collect and reflect on primary data and engage in problem solving. It includes various stages: a concrete experience, reflecting upon it, abstract conceptualization (analysis and generating conclusions or new ideas), and active application of the lessons drawn from the experience. The aims of this session are to explore: Different models or examples of experiential (service) learning currently being implemented across Georgetown University departments as part of for-credit degree courses;-The conditions under which such "action labs" tend to work well/not so well;-Implementation challenges and how they can be overcome; and-How to assess learning outcomes. The roundtable discussion is designed to focus on themes, including, but not limited to:-The extent to which learning may be enhanced through experience or fieldwork built into the course design;-The extent to which courses relying on experiential (service) learning may involve technology;-The cross-institutional collaboration that is often involved in service learning or experiential learning, how to connect partner institutions and how to ensure a positive experience for the different parties involved.
