Contemporary learning in the 21st Century demands that students develop their core competencies AND the 4 x Cs - Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking & Creativity skills. As a methodology, experiential learning is extremely effective at accomplishing these two goals. Yet, many teachers (and schools) believe that simply integrating activities or projects into their curriculum is the same thing - it’s NOT. In this interactive session, Mark will apply an experiential approach to help you distinguish what is and is not experiential learning, to help you develop critical success skills for your students. You will walk away with a bunch of new ideas which you can immediately introduce into your curriculum, and more importantly, a couple of strategies to sharpen your teaching skills.
