The Student Experiential Learning Conference will showcase VT-shaped learning through a celebration of the work of our Virginia Tech undergraduate student body.

Proposals are invited from students of all years and majors on projects and experiences that demonstrate purpose-driven experiential learning including: undergraduate research, service-learning, study abroad, internships, and other curricular and co-curricular programs and activities.

What do we mean by 'Experiential Learning'?

Experiential learning connects knowledge with action to produce deeper, applied understandings.

Within experiential learning, students participate in learning, activities, and reflections that engage them with communities, challenge them in authentic ways, and support their growth as citizens, humanitarians, and professionals.

Examples of experiential learning can include:

  • Undergraduate Research
  • Service Learning
  • Study Abroad
  • Internship
  • First Year Experience Course
  • General Education Course
  • Leadership Program
  • OR another experience or program that you, as a student or as a faculty member, feel fits the above definition.

As we move through the year, we will be posting explorations in experiential learning in the form of videos and blog posts written by Virginia Tech students and faculty. Our goal is to maintain a balance between being specific and inclusive of experiences that merit recognition.
