Evaluating and Verifying Experiential Learning
Last updated: June 7, 2018
In order to reliably evaluate and verify experiential learning activities, we will be centralizing experiential learning data through the Orbis Outcome platform. The platform will be accessed by students, staff, facully, industry and community partners; it will house a searchable catalogue of opportuntiies and allow for the promotion, validation and support of experiential learning activities. An inventory of all verifiable experiential learning opportunities will be conducted to be catalogued within the Orbis Outcome platform leading up to its launch in Fall 2018.
