EDAE 692 - Seminar: Adult Education - Experiential Learning

  • 3 credits

Experiential education is a very effective approach to immerse learners in a topic and encourage deep, meaningful, and lasting learning. During this course students will have the opportunity to engage in experiential learning as both a learner and a facilitator. They will gain the knowledge and skills on how to use experiential learning in their own educational contexts. We will use the beautiful CSU Mountain Campus facilities as the setting for this five-day residential course. Please note that activities can be revised to accommodate all student abilities.
During the seminar, students will:

  • Discuss and experience the tenets of experiential learning
  • Examine how to scaffold learning activities to maximize learning transfer
  • Participate in the art of facilitation (problem solving initiatives, low and high ropes course)
  • Plan and facilitate an experiential lesson relevant to their area of interest and expertise

This course meets in-person at the CSU Mountain Campus July 29 through August 2 and requires an additional fee for room and board at the Mountain Campus facilities (billed to student accounts).
