Welcome Merrimack Faculty!
The Center for Experiential Learning will offer resources to support your ExL education initiatives. We realize as Faculty that you have varied knowledge of pedagogical knowledge. Some of you may be quite familiar with the term and techniques, while others may be hearing it for the first time.
We also want this page to be a highlight of the extensive research and efforts you’ve put forth regarding the Pedagogy of Experiential Learning. Feel free to reach out to your colleagues across the campus in regards to the presentations housed here and let us know how we can be of service.
