- Internships & Co-ops
- Multidisciplinary Models of Experiential Learning
- Undergraduate Research
- Models of Reflection
- International Placements
Specific modules will include: faculty engagement, learning assessment, learning competencies & outcomes, strategies for educational planning, and site development for experiential education.
