Experiential learning

Research team at Diavik diamond mine, Canada

The location of the institute at a major land grant university provides ample opportunities for bridging teaching opportunities with fieldwork and problem-solving. In the planning tradition of charrettes, coupled with the emerging genre of service learning, the institute aims to develop a program where experiencing the dynamics of a conflict will help students and professionals alike and also provide a revenue base for the financial viability of the institute. UVM Continuing Education assists with the planning and administration of these learning modules which are offered in partnership with existing certificate and degree programs.
