Online Experiential Learning for Student Success by Scott Dawson

Online Experiential Learning for Student Success was presented by Scott Dawson at the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development's (NISOD's*) Annual Fall Virtual Conference from October 20–22, 2021. Scott Dawson is Associate Professor and Coordinator of Graphic Design and New Media at Clark State College.

Experiential learning gives students the opportunity to do real world problem solving and critical thinking. This collaboration between education and the community enhances student investment and allows students the chance to build their resume while in the classroom. While capstones, co-ops, internships, and service learning provide their own challenges in a traditional classroom, these challenges can be enhanced when experiential learning moves online. In this session, you will learn the differences between various types of experiential learning opportunities for students, analyze various case studies, and develop specific strategies to connect with local community organizations and businesses and create your own online experiential learning experiences.

Learning Objective 1
Analyze successful models of online experiential learning.
