Tools & Templates

To assist you with your development of experiential learning programs and curriculum, we are pleased to share templates and information pages for program planning and design phases. This section will continue to expand as we add more resources and receive feedback from Faculty partners. 

Program Planning & Logistics Phase
These two checklists are intended to help Queen’s Faculty evaluate their options and work through the logistics inherent in course or program design. These tools can act as a supplemental resource to course development procedures, and are meant to ensure that key logistical considerations are not overlooked during the initial planning stage.
Experiential Learning Design Phase

New resources will be added to this section based on feedback we receive.
