Abstract

High-Impact Educational Practices indicate hands-on, collaborative, reflective learning are essential for transitioning students into campus and career roles. Additionally, interacting in complex environments causes learners to fulfill more than one role and, as a result, fosters deeper cognition (Freitas, & Neumann, 2009). Educators facilitating learning experiences online often engage with students who feel disconnected from campus and career resources. Since students with career goals and well-established peer relationships are more likely to make positive persistence decisions, a broader application of experiential learning in online courses may be linked to an improvement in student retention and completion rates. Experiential learning is more needed than ever to replicate the complexity inherent in real world environments. Building online curriculum with intentional, targeted experiential learning activities is an important part of educating students for their current campus and future career roles.
