Experiential Learning grants brew innovative courses

Experiential learning may take the form of simulations, field courses, industry partnerships, case-based learning or community projects.

Four active-learning projects to be developed, with and for students, in the début year of the Experiential Learning Innovation Scholars Program supporting the work of five innovative professors. The program provides $20,000 across two years in each of the four projects, to help professors design novel courses with their students, and then share what they’ve learned with the academic and broader community.

Professors named experiential learning innovation scholars are:

  • Lauren Briens, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering
  • Dr. Nicole Campbell and Dr. Sarah McLean, Physiology and Pharmacology and Integrated Medical Sciences
  • John McGuire, Medical Biophysics
