Welcome to the University of Dayton Office of Experiential Learning Resource Guide! This guide is intended to help faculty, staff, and students find applications of experiential learning. The Office of Experiential Learning is committed to cultivating high-impact experiential learning opportunities, and this guide is a tool to support educators and students as they develop and implement their own opportunities.
This guide includes a variety of journal articles, books, and websites regarding experiential learning. Under the Table of Contents, you will first find ‘What is EL?’, which contains information about experiential learning in a broad sense. Next, we at the OEL have compiled a brief list of the most prominent experiential learning resources. To keep up with the latest publications on experiential learning, see the next category ‘Most Recent’. For a more extensive list, continue down the table of contents where you will find a continuation of the ways that experiential learning can be integrated into education.

This edited collection offers a unique multidisciplinary perspective into the many factors that go into designing, facilitating, expanding, and assessing experiential learning (EL) from the perspective of faculty and staff educators. The editor and contributors bring decades of expertise with different forms of EL, including community-engaged learning, education abroad, internships, and more. Chapters offer case studies and reflections which highlight personal experiences and anecdotes which illuminate the realities of experiential teaching and learning. Through these stories and narratives, readers may better understand what doing EL entails on an everyday basis--both on a local and global scale--and learn how to enhance support and resources for experiential educators on college and university campuses.
