Experiential Education in the College Context: What it is, How it Works, and Why it Matters

 
9781138025592: Experiential Education in the College Context: What it is, How it Works, and Why it Matters

Experiential Education in the College Context provides college and university faculty with pedagogical approaches that engage students and support high-impact learning. Organized around four essential categories―active learning, integrated learning, project-based learning, and community-based learning―this resource offers examples from across disciplines to illustrate principles and best practices for designing and implementing experiential curriculum in the college and university setting. Framed by theory, this book provides practical guidance on a range of experiential teaching and learning approaches, including internships, civic engagement, project-based research, service learning, game-based learning, and inquiry learning. At a time when rising tuition, consumer-driven models, and e-learning have challenged the idea of traditional liberal education, this book provides a compelling discussion of the purposes of higher education and the role experiential education plays in sustaining and broadening notions of democratic citizenship.

About the Author:

Jay W. Roberts is Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs and Director of the Center for Integrated Learning at Earlham College, USA.

Review:

"This book is an important, insightful and practical guide to experiential approaches that maximize engagement in teaching and learning. While giving technology its due, Roberts reminds us that higher education’s transformative power is in ‘live encounters.’"

―Parker J. Palmer, Founder and Senior Partner of the Center for Courage and Renewal and author of The Courage to Teach

"Experiential Education in the College Context is a wonderful, timely antidote to fads and technologies that promise much but often fail to ignite deep thinking and transformational learning. Roberts' book helps us see experiential education as an ecology of methods and theories that, when taken together and designed with caring intent, can ‘revitalize the live encounter’ between students and professors. This book makes a great contribution to the field at just the right time."

--Kathleen Knight Abowitz, Chair of the Department of Educational Leadership, Miami University, and Past President, John Dewey Society

"Roberts has written a book that both synthesizes and pushes our current examination of education. He combines theory and practice with motivation and design to teach us the importance of framing, empathy, reflection, chunking, processing, ownership, and more, in experiential education. He provides a comprehensive look at how to teach people, not content."

--José Antonio Bowen, President of Goucher College
