Experential Learning

What better way to build upon those skills learned in the classroom than through an experiential learning program offered by the University Libraries?

We, at the University Libraries, are honored to offer experiential learning programs to students majoring in Visual Arts, English, and History. These opportunities allow students to take classroom knowledge and expand upon it by being charged with challenging projects in a supportive, real-world work setting. 

Examples of work accomplished through the experiential learning include the beautiful murals on the first and second floor of the Library, the restoration of the large topographical globe located on the third floor, our UTPress books (http://utoledopress.com/), and the in-depth and educational exhibits hosted by Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections.   

In addition to honing technical skills, these learning opportunities give students the ability to exercise skills vital to succeeding in the workplace, such as creativity, problem-solving, collaboration, communication, and accountability.
