We invite you to a round table discussion on experiential teaching and learning* taking place on Friday 25 October 2019, 1:00 – 3:00pm, Social Science Centre room 1004,

We will have a mix of faculty, students, campus staff and community partners present at this event. It will take the form of a round table and interactive small-group discussions driven by the following questions:
What does it take to do community-engaged experiential learning well?

  • How could it be done effectively and efficiently?
  • What are the opportunities and challenges for faculty, students, programs and community partners?
  • Can interested CEL colleagues share experiences, initiatives, expertise and/or resources?

*A helpful definition of Experiential Learning is provided by Western’s EL taskforce: “an approach that educators use to intentionally connect learners with practical experiences that include authentic and focused reflection. EL allows learners to: increase and apply disciplinary knowledge, develop transferable skills, clarify interests and values, strengthen employability, and collaborate meaningfully with communities.”
