Undergraduate Curricular Inventory Process and Support

To better understand the depth and breadth of undergraduate curricular experiential learning at the University of Guelph, the Experiential Learning Team is seeking to engage the seven Colleges in a comprehensive inventory process. The primary goal of this work is to create a compehensive and searchable database of experiential learning opportunities that will be hosted on our new Orbis Outcome enterprise system.

Timeline

The inventory tool will be launched the week of March 5, 2018 with a completion goal of Friday, April 6, 2018.

Inventory Process

With the support of the University's Experiential Learning Advisory Committee, seven curricular experiential learning categories have been identified. Every course with embedded Experiential Learning will fall under one of these categories. The form each College will be asked to complete will capture the name of the course, its Experiential Learning category, and the criteria it meets. Details about experiential learning in graduate courses will be captured through a separate inventory process.

Each College has elected to engage with this process differently; some through curriculum committees and some through individual faculty. If you have questions about how your College is approaching the inventory and who should complete the inventory form, please contact your Associate Dean, Academic.

Help and Support

Lunch and Learn

To ensure faculty members are supported in filling out the inventory tool, The Experiential Learning Team will be offering Lunch and Learn sessions. The goal of these sessions will be to familiarize faculty with the seven curricular experiential learning categories, review the inventory process, and have any remaining questions answered. To sign up for a session, please visit this website. 

The Experiential Learning Team is here to help if you don't know how to categorize your course, need to request an additional Lunch and Learn session, or if you have questions about the curricular experiential learning categories or criteria. 

You can reach us at experience@uoguelph.ca or extension 52760.
