2020 NEean Dialogues in the Disciplines
March 27, 2020
Johnson & Wales University, Cranston, RI
Experiential Learning Across the Disciplines:
Models and Practice for Learning Assessment
Join us for an engaging symposium focused on experiential education and the opportunities and challenges it presents for assessment and evaluation.
Keynote Address by Donna Qualters, PhD.
The Case for Assessing Learning in Experiential Education"
Experiential Education is a powerful model of educating students in authentic situations to apply classroom learning in the real world. However, without a solid way of assessing, we often do not really know what connections between theory and practice are occurring nor how students apply or interpret their learning. As educators our goal is not only to assess but to help students develop the skill to continue to assess themselves after they leave the academy. Together we will explore the characteristics of authentic experiential education, look at the ways we can measure success of our offering, but more importantly explore how to promote and measure the effect of experience for student learning in the classroom and off campus sites.
