What is experiential learning?

Experiential learning is learning by doing ("Experiential Learning"). Often, experiential learning is hands-on and career-connected. Experiential learning can take many forms, including: simulations, project-based learning, community-based learning, undergraduate research, field work, study away and abroad, and internships.
