Experiential Learning Consultations: Faculty and Instructors

Share your perspective and join us for lunch from February 5 to 16

January 15, 2024 — 

By reconciling academic learning outcomes with authentic experiences and real-world contexts, experiential learning equips students with the knowledge, competencies and skill they need to thrive in today’s rapidly changing world.

The goal of these consultations is to better understand the challenges, supports and motivations influencing the ability of faculty members, instructors, and staff to integrate experiential learning into academic courses and programs.

While experiential learning is often used as a synonym for work experience, the University of Manitoba recognizes 12 different types of experiential learning—from project-based and creative assignments, to applied research, laboratories and studios. We want to hear what experiential learning looks like in your unique context!

The recently created Office of Experiential Learning is inviting all faculty members, instructors, and staff involved or interested in the development and delivery of experiential learning in academic courses and programs to grab lunch and share their perspectives!

In-person consultations will take place from February 5 to 16 at The Centre for The Advancement of Teaching and Learning in the Fort Garry Campus (lunch will be provided). 

A limited number of online consultations are available for those who are not able to attend in-person.

Please register here by January 31 for an Experiential Learning consultation.
