Experiential Learning Modules
These modules also help students navigate their experiential learning opportunity. Each module focuses on a different aspect of experiential learning. You can consider your responsibilities when engaged in experiential learning; gain a deeper understanding of your strengths, values and interests; learn about the value of reflection; set goals and create a personal learning plan to ensure you develop the competencies that matter to you; and reflect on those competencies while learning how to speak about them on resumes and in interviews.
The full set of experiential learning modules can be accessed on the University of Toronto Experiential Learning Modules website. Introduction to Community-Engaged Learning and Preparing for your Community-Engaged Learning Experience focus on CEL specifically.
