EXP Designation

Experiential learning is learning by doing through carefully chosen experiences that are supported by reflection, critical analysis and synthesis, and includes feedback on the effectiveness of students’ learning efforts.

The Experiential Learning Designation (EXP) is applied to courses that have a minimum of 10 hours per half-credit course, and 20 hours per full-year course.

Some examples of courses that would typically have this designation:

  • Internship Courses
  • Community Engaged Service Learning courses
  • ROP Courses
  • Independent Research Courses
  • Courses with field trips
  • Courses with laboratory or  practicum components
  • Courses where students learn in teams based on case studies
