Discovering New Experiences
To support our mission, and to encourage ongoing innovation in online learning, TEL is launching its Experiential Learning Project. Through the Experiential Learning Project, we will work with a diverse set of schools and institutions, instructors, and students to design and create openly licensed experiential learning modules for online general education courses.
To create affordable online education that promotes learner agency and leads to demonstrable mastery in specific subject domains.
Work with stakeholders to create open experiential learning content for online GenEd courses.
Designing the Framework
TEL’s experiential learning framework allows educators to integrate real-life participation models found outside of the classroom with traditional general education courses. Our modules are designed to let students work individually or collaboratively on real-world projects, to demonstrate subject/skill mastery gained through their participation, and to have a genuine impact in their local communities.
In order to have the broadest impact possible, and to provide equitable access to un(der)served populations, we are designing an experiential learning framework that:
Encourages individual learner agency
Emphasizes constructed knowledge over information memorization.
Promotes centrifugal learning by pushing student exploration outside of the “classroom”
Connects students to real-world applications of learning in their local communities
Provides project and learning choices that allow for student individualization based on interests and skills
Supports varying levels of online connectivity and provides access to both digital and print versions of module materials
