This year’s Experiential Education (EE) Symposium will take place in a virtual format on Wednesday, Feb. 2. The event will feature the achievements of students and faculty who have taken part in EE activities over the past year.

One of the most enjoyable events of the academic year, York University’s annual EE Symposium offers a brilliant roster of presentations created by students who have been involved in an experiential learning activity during their undergraduate studies. The multimedia event showcases their learning through posters, podcasts and video submissions and offers insight into what students learned, the skills and knowledge they acquired and stories of how they will take these experiences into their future studies and career plans.

The student presentations will showcase the classroom, community and work-focused EE activities and participants in the symposium will have an opportunity to engage with the student presenters through an interactive question-and-answer session. The symposium will also include a panel discussion on EE that features the perspectives of students, faculty and a community partner and will highlight the many different ways that experiential learning can be facilitated in post-secondary education. Panellists will speak to the benefits that EE can have for students, faculty and community partners.

The student presentations will be available to explore on the EE symposium website.

There are spots still available for students, faculty and staff and for interested community partners. Registration is open until the end of the day on Jan. 31. To register, visit https://www.yorku.ca/eesymposium/registration/.
