Guided by the university’s mission and strategic plan, as well as current research on student engagement, Experiential Learning focuses on enhancement of student learning through a process where students develop knowledge, skills, and values from direct experiences outside a traditional academic setting.

Experiential Learning at TWU bridges theory with practice, and is a dynamic, engaged form of learning characterized by active collaboration; real-world problem solving; hands-on application of classroom theories; in-depth engagement with content; or simulation of skills external to the classroom.

Experiential Learning includes the following programs for students and faculty at all TWU locations:

  • Experiential Student Scholars

  • Learn by Doing-Designated Courses

  • Experiential Fellows

  • National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE) Experiential Education Academy

Experiential Learning is co-located in the Pioneer Center for Student Excellence on the second floor of the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus.
