The Bishop’s University Experiential Learning Office aims to create, support and amplify opportunities for experiential learning as an integral part of students’ education both within the classroom and beyond. 

Experiential Learning (EL) is about providing students with opportunities to activate the skills, abilities, and knowledge they have learned by putting them into practice and engaging in disciplined, deliberate self-reflection of their experience. It connects classroom theory to real-life situations, leading to broad and long-lasting learning outcomes.

It is also the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace or graduate studies. 

Benefits of EL

  • prepares students professionally by giving them concrete experiences and expanding their array of skills
  • allows students to “test-drive” their career of interest
  • students tend to have greater success at securing jobs post-graduation
  • students’ starting salaries tend to be higher post-graduation
