xperiential learning is a classic approach to student engagement, based in experience, reflection, and application. At Georgia State University, over 350 'signature experience' courses offer experiential learning in formats such as field studies, internships, clinical rotations, student teaching, and service learning. Identifying the impact of experiential learning across an institution is a challenge, one that requires a multifaceted approach. For example, institutional research can test for contributions to academic trajectories or correlation with student competencies. Surveys can quantify student assessment of their own learning. Individual interviews can describe the experiences and effects. Outcomes at Georgia State confirm that students identify gains in critical thinking, communication, networking, and career goals. Based on impact analysis, developing value propositions for students, faculty, and staff may be critical to enhancing course-based experiential learning.
