The Applied Learning Infographic is a Great Visual to Show “We Care” in Action
Each step in the applied learning process creates an experience that the student will be able to use in their current or future careers. Students will be combining classroom application, service learning, global applications and workplace applications with the rigorous preexisting course content. This combination will create a first-hand educational experience where the students will be able to implement their course concepts into real world applications.
The aforementioned applied learning concepts will not only help students to become more engaged in their online courses, but help them to succeed in mastery over their course objectives in their chosen degree program.
