Experiential Learning is the process by which students learn through personal experience. Career-relevant skills, knowledge and experience are gained outside of the classroom, through student-sought experiences such as research, externships, internships or community service.

Through experiential learning, students gain experience by applying knowledge to real-world problems. According to the 2013 Association of American Colleges and University survey, employers endorse educational practices that engage student in active, effortful work—practices such as internships, research, and community engagements, among others.

As the economic climate continues to create challenges for graduates seeking employment, gaining practical skills and real-world experience may provide an advantage as a growing number of employers have come to expect to see these types of experiences on applicants’ resumes (Gallup, 2014).
