Reflections on Experiential Learning in an Undergraduate Global Health Course: Bringing the Workplace into the Classroom
Ezezika, Obidimma
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v12 p71-78 2019
Experiential learning has the potential to enhance students' success and prepare them for the job market, including through class experiences that mirror experiences in the workforce. In this article, I lay out the process of incorporating experiential learning in a global health course. I have derived three key lessons from the design and implementation of this course: focus on one overarching goal, align learning activities with real world expectations, and help students understand connections between their projects and course content. These lessons provide insights to integrate experiential learning activities in the classroom.
