...happen in the classroom?
BHSU faculty create experiential learning activities for students to complete in general education classes and in required courses across the majors, including:
Academic Service Learning integrates meaningful community service combined with instruction and reflection, while teaching civic responsibility, encouraging life-long learning and strengthening communities.
Community Based Research is conducted between trained “student experts" and members of a community. This type of experimentation can provide an authentic observation and field experience for the learner.
Problem Based Learning supports the application of learned facts, while creating significant learning experiences to encourage critical thinking and to connect interdisciplinary knowledge to real life cases, social problems, and current issues.
Real World Simulations are instructional scenarios where the learner is placed in a "world" defined by the professor. Simulations help students understand and use the nuances of a concept, principle, or circumstance.
Creative Expression refers to the phenomenon whereby a person creates something new (a product, solution, artwork, literary work, performance) that adds value.
