Experiential Learning Course Designation

“This service learning experience has changed my concept of civic responsibility.” Student

Why designate a course as an experiential learning course?

Each semester The Office of Experiential Learning compiles a list of current courses at MCC that include experiential learning. In its broadest definition, “experiential learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience” (Kolb, 1984). These courses may include experiences designated as apprenticeship and internship, practicum or clinical, cooperative education, field study, course-embedded projects, and service learning. Your assistance in identifying these courses will benefit the overall mission of experiential learning at Mott as well as provide the following benefits:

  • Inclusion in the online directory of experiential learning courses.
  • Opportunities to nominate and award students who have provided outstanding service through experiential learning.
  • Access to surveys for identifying and promoting outcomes of experiential learning.
  • Media recognition for providing service learning opportunities.

To designate your course, please access the Experiential Learning Identification Form or contact the Experiential Learning Office for more information. You will be asked each spring to renew your course for this designation.
