Present an Experiential Education Academy Workshop 

Reflection in Experiential Education Workshop:    

While experiences are the first E in experiential education, it is through reflection that the learning takes its root and makes lasting changes.  According to Kolb, learning is a process where knowledge is created through the transformation of experience.  Reflection is integral to that transformation.  This workshop will explore methods of guiding students to be more reflective in their experiences and following their experiences:  the use of journals in reflection and models for conducting regular seminars promoting reflection and reflective conversation.
