2013 Teaching Development Day: A Conference on Teaching and Learning

Sites, Sources and Assessment in an Experiential Learning Environment

with Scott McLean, Queen's Bader International Study Centre, Herstmonceux Castle
videotaped on September 4, 2013




Session Description

The unique learning environment at the Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle provides faculty with the opportunity to integrate a variety of experiential learning initiatives into their teaching. A well integrated field study programme has long been a core component of most courses offered, and recently this has been enhanced through emphasis being placed upon a greater the use of primary sources, be they documents, works of art, objects of interest or historic sites. Through a series of case studies, this workshop will demonstrate that it is possible to not only enhance the student’s learning experience through engagement with primary materials, but that with a little ‘outside the box’ thinking it is possible to get students excited about their assignments
