Experiential Learning Outside the Classroom: A Dynamic Model for Business and Leadership Education Using Short-Term Missions

Abstract

This three-year project demonstrates an effective, dynamic model of experiential learning for business students that is informed by 1) David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model, 2) a comprehensive set of desired student learning outcomes, and 3) core values for cross-cultural partnerships. It is accomplished through multiple student led business and leadership conferences held in under-resourced communities in Uganda, working in partnership with local non-government organizations. A supporting highlight distinguishes between this program and commonly used practices in short-term mission trips.
