A new working group of faculty and staff from across campus is forming to help shape the future of experiential learning at Boise State. This group, the Experiential Learning Network, is a result of the Strategic Enrollment and Retention Plan and its first priority is addressing current for-credit experiential learning opportunities.
The network will help drive the university’s vision to realize a campus which intentionally infuses experiential learning and career readiness into the student experience.
This group will support the university to:
- address access and impact issues connected to experiential learning through policy, process and practice.
- provide a menu of experiential learning options that are accessible, impactful, consistent and supported by faculty who are recognized and rewarded for their work.
- integrate high-impact experiential learning opportunities into every students’ Boise State experience and assess their effect on post-graduation outcomes.
The group will be co-chaired by Donna Llewellyn, executive director of the Institute for Inclusive and Transformative Scholarship, and Debbie Kaylor, director of Career Services. The initial commitment for this working group will be for the 2023/24 academic year, with an option to continue or opt out. Full group meetings are planned for once a semester, with subgroups meeting more frequently and asynchronous work for members in between meetings.
Those interested in helping to shape the vision of experiential learning at Boise State can complete the application by Sept. 29. Applicants will be updated on their status the first week of October.
