You’ve probably heard about the benefits of experiential learning for students – how it increases student satisfaction and success, and helps them put complex concepts in a real-world context and deepens understanding. You may also be aware that UofSC promotes experiential learning opportunities through engagement in community service, peer leadership, research, study abroad, and professional engagement such as internships. But how might that translate into an online course?

This special workshop explores how faculty can incorporate meaningful experiential learning activities into online courses to provide rich learning opportunities for students. Whether you’re new to online learning or a seasoned pro, join us as we share ideas and best practices in making the most of online learning!


This workshop counts as an elective toward the Integrative and Experiential Learning certificate.
