This program is designed to help teams of faculty members and administrators from a university to work together to further enhance their existing experiential education programs. Expert faculty will lead discussions and activities to highlight well-published practices from around the world designed to ensure high quality experiential curricula. This information will be foundational to team-based activities that will occur throughout the workshop. Sessions will discuss all elements of experiential education, with a focus on strategic planning and quality assurance as it relates to thematic areas of experiential education (preceptors, sites, curriculum, and assessment). Although this is a continuation of the discussion from the March 2018 workshop, content will be designed and presented in a way that is beneficial to both returning and first time teams. Prior to the 2019 session, participating institutions will be invited to prepare posters to share successes of one or more of their experiential programs they implemented.
Individual teams will also have the opportunity to meet with expert faculty on the last (optional) day of the workshop to discuss specific issues related to your home institution.
