Getting experiential learning (EL) and work-integrated-learning (WIL) right is important, and getting each experience right feels complex. Multiple stakeholders, aims, and needs pose challenges to navigating relationships and designing experiences, while ongoing shifts to remote learning and restricted workplaces remove the usual options.
Why You Should Attend
This new webinar series comes in response to a popular standalone webinar delivered earlier this year by our presenters and aims to further your learning on how to design effective experiential learning. Participants don’t need to have seen the standalone webinar to attend the series.
This deeper series will teach you how to navigate among stakeholders (e.g., learners, partnering organizations, senior school or institution administrators, government, and funders), identify the often-unstated intended outcomes of the experience, and design experiences within your context. Our two presenters will share the Outcome-Based Experiential Learning (OBEL) framework they developed as a concise and guided design process to enable you to successfully navigate EL planning and implementation. Furthermore, participants will also receive a complimentary copy of the new OBEL guide.
This webinar series is a good fit for:
- Staff, educators and community partners working to co-design, recruit for, advise students, and offer experiences;
- Community partners seeking to define why and how they will host experiences; and
- Educational institutions and schools creating strategies.
- Specify your stakeholders
- Specify intended outcomes of experiential learning
- Identify (or design a plan to co-identify) specific intended outcomes of each stakeholder group
- Distinguish between opportunity types (WIL, practice spaces, projects and employment programs)
- Identify the five design factors influencing the possible experiences
- Using the five design factors, define your current context including its possibilities and constraints
- Identify how to adapt existing or planned experiences when the factor changes in your context
- Refine the design factors and intended outcomes including adaptation options
- Select and design appropriate and feasible assessment options
- Confirm alignment between intended outcomes, activities, assessment and evaluation utilizing the OBEL planning template
