    The Experiential Learning Hub (EL Hub) is a “front door” to experiential learning at Queen's University. We support efficient cross-institutional planning and delivery of experiential learning, providing advising for program development, collaboration, and sharing of resources through a central contact.

    We encourage:

    • Faculty to contact us for resources and advice when adding an experiential learning component to a pre-existing course or developing a new program. We can provide some preliminary tools and templates and help connect you with others doing similar work at Queen's.

    As the site grows, and we hear from faculty, students and partner organizations, more resources will be made available.
