Experiential Learning

Our blended learning program involves extensive community-based experiential learning placements that allow students to apply their academic knowledge to address real-world priorities within an Indigenous community setting. In this model, all parties (e.g., students, community leaders, and facilitators) take part in the teaching and learning process. These experiential learning placements provide the opportunity for Indigenous community partners to draw upon students’ expertise while also teaching students about the key health and wellness priorities within the community. Community partners take on the role of co-educators of students defining the priorities that the students work on.
