MTSU Institute of Experiential Learning

Incorporating Experiential Learning into Your Teaching


More Details

MTSU Institute of Experiential Learning

In a concentrated effort to share information and guide the development of best practices across the region, MTSU is sponsoring the Institute of Experiential Learning open to all faculty members interested in incorporating high-impact practices into their courses.  This professional development event is being offered free of charge to all higher education faculty members.

Lead faculty members of the EXL Scholars Program will share an overview of the award-winning experiential learning program at MTSU with a focus on course development, student interest, and several assignments unique to the EXL Scholars Program.  Faculty members will share their expertise regarding methods for incorporating experiential learning into academic courses, how to locate and foster community and corporate partnerships, and how to evaluate the students on the learning outcomes. We hope you will join us online on June 14.


You will receive a Zoom meeting link the day before the Institute.

Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date on planned workshops, special events, and faculty book groups as well as highlighted articles that may be of interest to you.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Lando Carter.
