How We Do It
Many colleges and universities recognize the need to better connect students’ learning across their in- and out-of-classroom experiences, but how to do this often feels overwhelming. Creating a holistic experiential education implementation infrastructure is a heavy lift for many campuses, with the average campus spending 3-5 years to create or scale their experiential learning initiatives. Unfortunately, many campuses exert time and energy reinventing existing practices, creating understandable initiative fatigue and decreasing the chance of success.
By working with SOC, campuses can accelerate change and reach scale in just 18-24 months.
We do this by partnering with campuses to develop and implement a holistic strategy to scale high-quality equitable experiential education and High-Impact Practices using vetted methods. We work with you through an iterative process that includes strategy and goal development, an audit of your existing experimental opportunities, and the implementation of a personalized plan that includes assessing student learning, administering faculty and staff professional development, designing equity goals, and building a robust data infrastructure.
