Applying Experiential Learning in College Teaching and Assessment: A Process Model.
Jackson, Lewis, Ed.; And Others
This manual presents a process model in which university teaching and assessment processes are embedded within a broader view of the human learning experience and the outcomes that are required for professional student growth. The model conceptualizes the university's role in the lives of life-long learners and provides a framework for rethinking traditional university teaching practices and future research into teaching and learning. The model's components include: (1) adult learner characteristics; (2) the conceptual foundations of experiential learning; (3) methods and techniques for engaging learners in experiential learning activities; (4) assessment processes and outcomes, involving building a folio with artifacts and reproductions; and (5) building a portfolio from the folio. Implications of the model for college and university courses and programs are discussed. Chapters have the following titles and authors: "Overview of the Model of the Teaching/Learning Process" (Lewis Jackson and Doug MacIsaac); "Characteristics of Adult Learners and Foundations of Experiential Learning" (Rosemary Caffarella and Bruce Barnett); "Methods and Techniques for Engaging Learners in Experiential Learning Activities" (Patty Lee and Rosemary Caffarella); "Assessment Processes and Outcomes: Building a Folio with Artifacts and Reproductions" (Bruce Barnett and Patty Lee); and "Assessment Processes and Outcomes: Building a Portfolio from the Folio" (Doug MacIsaac and Lewis Jackson).
