High Intensity Learning Experiences (HILEs): Taking EE to the Next Level
Nov 8 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

Increasingly faculty use case studies as ways of creating context, applying learning to real-world scenarios, bringing theory to life and as a tool for engagement and the development of critical analysis skills.  This is a helpful tool in education and training.  The workshop facilitator has over 22 years of experience with the use of case studies and has been experimenting with variations on the design and delivery of case studies.  With the addition of “high intensity” as a stressor the results are more and deeper learning.  Find out how adding stressors can make students more engaged and have more fun too.

Facilitator: Peter P. Constantinou, PhD is a teaching stream faculty member in the School of Public Policy and Administration at York University and winner of numerous teaching awards, including the President’s University-Wide Teaching award at York University.

EE Bootcamp – Friday, December 8, 2017
Dec 8 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

The EE workshops are designed to support faculty who wish to incorporate Experiential Education into their teaching, either in the classroom or in the community. The Bootcamp combines the content of Introduction to Experiential Education and Experiential Education: Reflection and Assessment.

In the first half of the workshop, we will define EE and its three foci in the context of York, discuss the theory informing EE, and consider the critical role of structured reflection in experiential education. In the second half, we will brainstorm ideas for reflective activities and consider how to evaluate experiential learning. The workshop will be delivered via presentations, videos and hands-on activities designed to help participants develop an EE course that includes reflective learning and its assessment, for both in-class and community focused EE.  All bootcamps run from 10AM to 3PM.
