Recla co-authors chapter on experiential learning’s effects on ethics and diversity

Matt Recla

Matt Recla, a history lecturer and interim associate director of University Foundations, co-authored a chapter in Integrating Community Service into Curriculum: International Perspectives on Humanizing Education titled “‘Slowly Changing the World’: Embedding Experiential Learning to Enhance Ethics and Diversity.”

In the chapter, the authors discuss the process of embedding experiential learning in a required ethics and diversity course, and suggest that in a course that challenges students to think about their lives in community, engagement with that community plays a critical role in humanizing the learning experience.
