Tóm tắt

The core principle of experiential learning-that learners benefit from opportunities to transfer skills and information from one context (such as the lab or classroom) to another (such as the workplace or community)-has been increasingly accepted in U.S. higher education over the last decade. However, its implementation in liberal arts contexts is not always well understood. At my institution, Northeastern University, experiential learning for most of the twentieth century centered on our signature co-operative education (“co-op”) program, in which students punctuate semesters of full-time study with periods of full-time work. In this chapter, I review the growth over the last century of experiential learning in an increasingly broad range of institutions and describe the recent developments in learning science that support such expansion. I draw on the experiences of students and educators at Northeastern to illustrate how experiential opportunities can help students in the liberal arts forge meaningful educational paths. © The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2022.
