About this book

This edited collection offers a unique multidisciplinary perspective into the many factors that go into designing, facilitating, expanding, and assessing experiential learning (EL) from the perspective of faculty and staff educators. The editor and contributors bring decades of expertise with different forms of EL, including community-engaged learning, education abroad, internships, and more. Chapters offer case studies and reflections which highlight personal experiences and anecdotes which illuminate the realities of experiential teaching and learning. Through these stories and narratives, readers may better understand what doing EL entails on an everyday basis—both on a local and global scale—and learn how to enhance support and resources for experiential educators on college and university campuses.
