Experiences in Experiential Learning – Thinking Outside the Classroom

Presented by Gerry Cook
Session Type: Conversation

Having problems connecting what you’re teaching in the classroom with what your graduates’ employers expect them to be able to do? If so, this conversation session is right for you. Experiential Learning takes the student out of the classroom and into the workplace. It not only gives “hands-on” practice for your students, but more importantly teaches them how to deal with real-life problems in organizational culture, teamwork, conflict resolution and communications. This session will start off with a brief overview of experiential learning as applied in the Operations Management Technology Program. In the rest of the session we will brainstorm ways to bring experiential learning into your courses. Please bring your ideas, questions, and/or thoughts to share.
