Students are often passive agents that learn about course materials

Our experiential learning activities require students to 1) learn course materials, 2) put them to use in a life-like scenarios, and 3) learn from their successes and mistakes.

Students are active agents who put course material into action and then reflect on their experiences.

Students often struggle to connect course material to their lives and world.

Our experiential learning activities enable students to not only see – but experience – how the course material is (or was) used in the real world.

Course material is relevant and meaningful to students and their lives.

Teachers, limited in many ways, must often resort to ‘telling’ their students about the course material, rather than letting them interact with it.

Our experiential learning activities are student-centered; students are autonomous players, while teachers advise and facilitate

Students have control over their learning while teachers are able to coach and mentor their students.

Learning tasks and assessment tools tend to focus on knowledge mastery instead of reflecting the assessment methods used in the real world.

Students apply what they've learned to life-like scenarios, better preparing them for the performance and success measurements used in the real world.

Learning tasks and assessment tools are authentic and performance-based, reflecting those used in the real world.

All of these realities disengage students

Our experiential learning activities attempt to reignite our inborn thirst to learn, cooperate, compete, and succeed.

Everything mentioned above ENGAGES students and motivates them to learn!
