On Friday, March 29 from 11:30-1pm, over 130 community partners and UTC staff and faculty attended the first ever Experiential Learning Celebratory Luncheon in the UC Chattanooga Rooms. The Chancellor, Provost, Experiential Learning Task Force, and many other Experiential Learning partners came together to meet each other, hear Provost Hynd and Chancellor Angle’s remarks about the past, present and future of Experiential Learning at UTC. Linda Bachman, who led University of Georgia through their recent implementation of an Experiential Learning graduation requirement. There was also time for sharing reflections on building experiential learning opportunities for students, as well as areas for growth. Themes that emerged from this discussion are: Interdisciplinary Collaboration, Strategic Internship Placement, Paying students, Scaling EL / Students Workers, Graduate Studies, Faculty and Administrative buy-in, concern for faculty workload, research as Experiential Learning, and consistency and evaluation. If you have any questions or thoughts about any of this, we would enjoy hearing from you, and please do not hesitate to contact me at: bengt-carlson@utc.edu
