Experiential Learning & Teaching in Higher Education (ELTHE) explores postsecondary experiential education: the pedagogies, courses, and programming that engage students by taking college beyond the classroom – into settings like communities, laboratories, studios, and work-based learning. Good experiential education is intentionally designed, authentically located, and enriched by metacognition and reflection.

The journal seeks to advance the field by:

  1. Providing new insights into the ways experiential education promotes engagement, persistence, and learning.
  2. Sharing new approaches to bringing experiential education to the students who most stand to benefit, including historically underserved populations.
  3. Promoting scholarship that draws on a clear methodological framework to inform higher education practice.
