Experiential Learning: SSL and Field Trips
Our AAT Program embeds experiential learning into our courses. Our students partake in Student Service-Learning (SSL) experiences and discovery through field trips!
Many EDUC 2301 students visited our LSC-CF Assistive Technology Lab to learn about the computerized tools available for individuals with different abilities on our campus. Last semester students visited the Unlimited Potential School at the Children’s Museum and The Asia Society. Through these field trips, students discussed practical implementations to their future classrooms based on their observations.
Aside from STEM-related Service Learning in collaboration with our Children’s Library, several classes visited REACH Unlimited, a facility for adults with special needs. Professor Arastu’s classes created lessons in areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) and engage with the REACH clients through rotating centers. (do you want to say again? It is mentioned above) This was a rewarding experience for all.
