What is Experiential Learning

Experiential Learning (EL) is a teaching and learning method aimed at providing learners with authentic learning in a workplace environment that is embedded in program curriculum. Durham College offers a range of experiential learning opportunities as a formal component of a program of study; examples include field placements and co-operative education.

The resources on experiential learning have been curated to increase faculty awareness and knowledge about experiential learning. Navigate through the Experiential Learning resources to learn more about the benefits, see examples and consider the integration into curriculum.
