What benefits can faculty and students expect? 

Experiential learning (ExL) refers to an educational approach whereby students learn by engaging in direct application of skills, theories, and models. Students apply knowledge and skills gained from traditional classroom learning to hands-on and/or real-world settings, creative projects or independent or directed research, and in turn apply what is gained from the applied experience to academic learning. The experiential learning activity can occur outside of the traditional classroom experience and/or be embedded as part of a course.
