Experiential Learning Lab


During the Experiential Learning Virtual Lab, first- and second-year students will have the opportunity to meet the Director of Experiential Learning and EL Student Ambassadors to learn about experiential learning at UD. EL Student Ambassadors will share their Experiential Learning Roadmap videos (made with Prezi Video) and facilitate discussion with event participants around their personal, academic, and professional interests and goals. Participants will break into small groups to begin creating a sketch of their own learning journey roadmaps, and they will have the opportunity to share and present their maps with peers. Participants will learn valuable information about how to get engaged, and they will meet peer leaders who can offer guidance and mentorship, which will lead to rich dialogue that will contribute to student success and building a sense of community. Participants will also learn how to use tools like Prezi video to showcase their learning experiences and accomplishments and tell their own unique stories.

Student Roadmap Examples

In EL Lab sessions, students brainstorm and create a roadmap of their EL, academic, and personal experiences which communicate their unique stories. With this roadmap, students can reflect on how their experiences connect and influence one another, as well as think about opportunities that they may want to become involved in. Some roadmaps from previous EL Labs are included below. (Click the play icon or right arrow to proceed through images).

The OEL's first two EL Ambassadors, Jamie Morris and Rhyan Pearson, have created digital roadmaps using Prezi Video. Due to the shift to online learning following COVID-19, utilizing digital creative tools has become an important part of EL.
