Experiential Learning & GACE
To summarize the influential work of David Kolb, Experiential Learning is a process initiated by an experience that demands reflection. This reflection informs abstract thinking that draws conclusions on the experience which compels the learner to act or experiment based on what they learned.
GACE’s Experiential Learning Committee examines and responds to the needs of experiential based education programs in Georgia with a focus on career-related experiences integrated with post-secondary education. In particular, the Committee focuses on Cooperative Education, Externships, Internships, Field Study, Practicums, Job Shadowing and Service-Learning Experiences.GACE Members: If you would like to share an experiential learning resource or include your company/institution as an example, contact Experiential Learning Committee Chair, Andrew Potter.
The Experiential Learning Committee is excited to announce a new series of four “Practitioner Modules” that will be offered to GACE Members during the 2022 - 2023 academic year. Grab your lunch and a colleague and join us virtually from 12:00-1:00pm on September 7, December 5, February 1, and April 3. These sessions will emphasize best practices in Experiential Learning while identifying resources and networks to immediately apply insights at your institution or place of business.
