Experiential, Authentic Learning Strategies

On December 12th, 2013, the Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies (CTET) hosted the fourth workshop in the RRU Learning and Teaching Model Workshop Series on “Experiential and Authentic Learning”. Approximately 50 people gathered on-campus and online to participate in this event.

A variety of perspectives on the meaning of “experiential” and “authentic” were reviewed as a lead-in to the stories told by faculty and staff about how they incorporate experiential and authentic learning into their programs and courses. The story tellers used the opportunity not only to share their experiences but to also ask for help from participants in addressing the questions and challenges posed.
