During your orientation experience you will have an opportunity to participate in an experiential learning activity. What does that really mean?
In July 2008 we created an experiential learning activity for students coming through orientation as new students to the University. During orientation we try to focus on transformational learning and being different people after an experience than prior to it. During critical transition points in students’ academic progress, we are creating transitional experiences. The second experience will be at the mid-point in your educational experience and the third will be at graduation.
One of the most important things in an experiential learning exercise is to focus on bringing meaning to the experience. The four components to the experience are awareness, learning, application, and accountability. As students who are entering professions in which you need to personally engage your constituents, this activity will provide you with useful tools and helpful information to do just this.
We have four primary outcomes for the day. Please remember them and try to focus on them while you are participating in this activity.
To participate in this activity, you will need to wear workout attire. We do not allow open toe shoes on the course so please make sure you have sneakers or other closed-toed shoes you can wear to participate in this activity.
