Experiential Learning and Teaching

Brandeis University offers students and faculty a wide range of active and reflective learning and teaching opportunities.

The mission of The Office of Experiential Learning and Teaching is to collaborate with faculty and staff to help students:

  • broaden, deepen and enrich their relationship to the content/subject matter
  • actively apply and connect their learning to their own life experience
  • understand their motivations and values
  • inform current and future curricular, career and co-curricular experiences
  • develop agency, self-efficacy resilience, decision making, reflection and other life skills
  • participate as informed citizens in a global society                                 

We act on our mission by supporting the use of Experiential Learning pedagogy both in and out of the classroom. Experiential Learning pedagogy encourages students to reflect on what they are learning to develop new knowledge, skills and values. Therefore, learners construct meaning in a way unique to themselves that can influence their lives and future decisions towards their participation as responsible global citizens.
