Experiential Learning: Dissolving Classroom and Research Borders
McClellan, Rhonda; Hyle, Adrienne E.
Journal of Experiential Education, v35 n1 p238-252 Spr 2012
During a summer cruise to Mexico and Central America, students earned academic credit for doctoral-level coursework in qualitative research approaches and data collection and analysis. This study explored how participants, 16 doctoral students at a midwestern university, perceived experiential education and its effect upon their understanding of qualitative research. Data included participants' observation field notes and reflective journaling. Analysis revealed three major themes: learning in a foreign context, experiencing how to work with a research team, and grappling with qualitative research.
