1. COA: Experiential Learning on the Atlantic


    from Watson Institute Added 1,204 6 3

    http://www.luceenvironment.org/ The College of the Atlantic illustrates how experiential learning is not only interdisciplinary, but profoundly enriched by its immersion in the biophysical environment. The ocean becomes the critical partner for developing a sustainable marine studies program that helps all students — from artists to scientists — to understand and communicate better how humans and the environment are related.

    • Wake Up Call


      from Phyllis Graber Jensen Added 237 0 2

      Professor of German Denis Sweet’s Short Term course “Wake Up! An Experiential Journey to Self-Awareness, Nature, and Social Engagement” educates Bates students one experience at a time. Sweet says: "A quarter-century of teaching at Bates has shown me how adept Bates students are at articulating abstract notions in academic papers. But at the same time they remain teenagers seeking their way in life. Often, I find, there is a profound disconnect between the two. So I wanted to provide a venue for learning and for experiencing some things that are essential to the development of young people, yet which they are otherwise not getting in academic courses."
