Experiential and Scholarly Engagement in an Honors Digital Environment​

Session Description
This presentation will examine a specific Honors course framed around Experiential Learning theory and engagement activities. The modern world Honors student operates in a digital landscape. Consequently, Honors as a discipline has the opportunity to embrace that technological reality and develop a healthy suite of online learning opportunities, while still delivering rich curriculum, critical thinking, and forging meaningful connections. One aspect of an Honors College or Program mission is an emphasis on engagement activities such as internships, research, and service learning. But do we provide academic support and scholarly reflection opportunities for Honors students who are engaged in these enriching and academically related placements? These placements can be research or internship in nature, and can help successfully bridge the Honors student to their final Honors project. To fully reap the benefits of this experience, students need a structured learning framework to assimilate and own the knowledge gained which this course is designed to address.
