Adding Experiential Learning to Your Courses
High-Impact Practices/Experiential Learning (HIP/EL) can serve as a consultant to provide information, suggestions, guidelines, best practices and research for incorporating experiential learning opportunities such as Internships, Service Learning or Field Study into your course or department. We are also able to present to classes on various topics that can assist students in participating in experiential learning. Additionally, we can provide information on partnering with our office for our Cooperative Education (Co-Op) program.
