2018 Call for Proposals
DCAL invites proposals for its third iteration of the Experiential Learning Seed Grant from teams of faculty, staff, and/or students. Broadly defined, experiential learning at Dartmouth includes academic and co-curricular opportunities that incorporate elements of research, service for social impact, internships and other professional development, outdoor programs, entrepreneurial activity, leadership training, global study, and other project-based experiences that complement and enhance academic learning. The intended impact of experiential learning at Dartmouth is to increase students’ confidence and capacity for innovation and risk-taking, to collaborate across difference, and to engage in complex problem solving and reflective critical thinking. DCAL’s experiential learning working definition and impact areas provide a common framework for experiential learning design and assessment across this wide range of opportunities.
