Experiential Education Task Force
Increasing opportunities for experiential education is one of the University of Manitoba's Institutional goals outlined in our strategic plan Taking Our Place 2015-2010. It is a pedagogical approach to learning that can advance teaching, research, service and support our commitment to Indigenous Achievement. Over the last five years, the University has taken a number of steps to develop a campus-wide experiential education strategy that has focused on five priority areas; 1) community service-learning, 2) co-operative education, 3) international student mobility, 4) student entrepreneurship, and 5) undergraduate research and creative works. The purpose of the Experiential Education Task Force is to review initiatives and programs to-date at the University, explore emerging programs and practices at other Canadian post-secondary institutions, and provide recommendations to enhance curricular and co-curricular Canadian post-secondary institutions, and provide recommendations to enhance curricular and co-curricular experiential education opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Manitoba.
