Rethinking experiential learning in summer schools

We learn best when we are active, engaged and having fun. There’s a need for experiential learning to be integral to course design, especially in freer forms of education like summer schools and short-term programming, resulting in a more complete and successful learning experience for students. This session, involving a gallery walk, will be a thought-provoking discussion on how higher education institutions need to rethink to remain competitive after COVID.
