College-Sponsored Experiential Learning--A CAEL Handbook.
Duley, John; Gordon, Sheila
This handbook is designed for college faculty concerned with developing effective off-campus experiential learning programs, and with assessing the outcomes of these programs. The theoretical background of experiential learning is discussed, and the practical and implementation issues are emphasized: definition of educational objectives, development of work experience placement for students, and preparation of students for effective learning experiences. The methods of monitoring ongoing experiential learning programs, and of integrating these learning experiences into the overall college program are described. Cross-references to related materials also published by the Cooperative Assessment of Experiential Learning Project are included in the form of a check list. Lists of bibliographical references and related associations are appended. (Author/MV)
