Experience-Based Learning 

What is included as Experience-Based Applied Learning? 

Simply put, any learning experiences that encompass the applied learning model but do not fit into the other 8 applied learning categories is counted as Experience-Based. One-time or smaller scale applied learning experiences may also fit best in this category.

Campus Resources for Experience-Based AL 

Experience-Based applied learning is often embedded within an academic course or connected to a larger initiative or program. These experiences may help a partner achieve a particular goal such as redesigning a restaurant’s menu or require students to travel to complete a particular task such as a kayak trip to collect water samples or to seek inspiration for a creative work.     

Tealstarter is the official crowdfunding platform for UNCW and it enables members of the UNCW community to raise money for projects that will further enrich the student experience.
