Given the overwhelming amount of information available through digital sources, we aim to curate a collection of literature and resources that aid in conversations about the need for and proper implementation of experiential education.

Experiential Learning in the Time of COVID-19
With the current disruptions to the traditional setting of education and the workplace, we must think creatively about how to deliver high impact practices using methods capable of pivoting to meet changing circumstances. It is important to take measures ensuring the quality of students' experiences remains on par with institutional standards.
ELCE will continue to search for resources that support our faculty and students who are engaged in experiential education during these trying times. If you find anything that you think could be helpful, please send it to email@example.com, and we will share it with our community.
