150 Years of Experiential Learning at Trinity

Experiential Learning Defined


This digital humanities exhibit explores the history and evolution of Experiential Learning at Trinity. It reveals that Experiential Learning has taken diverse forms throughout the history of the university. While Experiential Learning is not a wholesale "fix" for education and nor should it replace conventional theory-based teaching, it does enhance the educational experience for students. In the pages of this exhibit, you will find historical documents and oral history interviews that reflect the effects Experiential Learning has had on students and faculty and how this dynamic has changed over Trinity’s 150-year history.
