Experiential Instruction

In May 2020, CEI convened a series of systemwide discussions initiated by Executive Vice President & Provost Croson to generate and share creative solutions for doing experiential instruction online. Ideas and effective practices that were generated as well as session recordings are available in the following documents. This YouTube playlist includes recordings for all sessions.
