This page contains research on experiential learning, which “refers to a broad spectrum of educational experiences, such as study abroad programs, community service, fieldwork, sensitivity training groups, workshops, internships, cooperative education involving work in business or industry, and undergraduate participation in faculty research. Whether such learning is educational depends on the degree to which the learning is transferable to other times and places. Cognitive and motivational theory point to the likely value of discovering and applying principles and concepts.” (Center for Excellence in Teaching, USC).
The page links to articles on information about experiential learning as an instructional methodology and also service learning, specifically, as an instructional methodology.
