There is still time to explore experiential learning at UM

April 24, 2023 — 

Do you teach experientially? Are you curious about how experiential learning can transform your teaching experience and your students’ engagement with course content? Would you like to connect, share stories and hear perspectives from other faculty and instructors who are either engaged or interested in experiential learning at the UM?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ll want to check out the following events, hosted by the Office of Experiential Learning at the Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning:

The Experiential Learning Gathering: Teaching Experientially in 2023

  • May 2, 2023
  • 9:30 am -12 pm, light refreshments provided
  • Room 200A (The Cloister), St John’s

A growing number of instructors and faculty members are incorporating different forms of experiential learning into their courses. The aim of this series of gatherings is to create a vibrant, supportive and collaborative community of experiential learning practitioners at the UM.

Covid-19, the rise of A.I. and uncertainty about the role of post-secondary education in our rapidly changing world are transforming the way we think about experiential learning. Join colleagues from diverse faculties and backgrounds as we explore emerging trends, challenges, and opportunities for EL in 2023.

Please note, the Experiential Learning Gathering is not a component of the TLC program.
