    A Brandeis Symposium Spotlighting Undergraduate Students’ Exploration, Discovery and Innovation


    On March 26, 2009, Brandeis hosted an interdisciplinary symposium around the topic of experiential learning. Our goal was to bring together students from all majors and disciplines to share their work with the entire Brandeis community in order to highlight students who created particularly engaging and experiential coursework. Our expectations were exceeded by students, faculty staff and all who participated. With over 150 people in attendence at 5 seperate events, more than 50 students presented outstanding posters and panel topics and engaged with reflective and thoughtful audiences. We are proud of the work put in by all and have already begun planning next year's (EL)2 symposium on March 18th, 2010.
