This course offers an intentional learning structure and cohort model for students who are engaging in independent research, scholarship, or creative work. Students who take this course meet regularly throughout the term to share about and reflect on their experience. Students are supported individually by a faculty mentor, in a small cohort with a similar disciplinary focus or project structure, and by engaging with the larger, interdisciplinary community. Students in this course develop a tangible product (e.g., video, podcast, ePortfolio, slideshow, paper) articulating the narrative and value of their learning experience that will be shared within their cohort meetings. Students also develop a conference-style poster to capture the process and outcomes of their research, scholarship or creative work. These posters are presented at an on-campus symposium. EXLN 298 fulfills the Experiential Learning Graduation Requirement. Please contact Elize Hellam for questions.
