Experiential Learning Courses
GEL Experiential Learning Courses

Experiential Learning is introduced to the GE domain from 2019/20 onwards. It comprises Experiential Learning Courses (ELCs) and Co-Curricular and Service Learning Courses (CSLCs).

ELCs encourage students to learn through experimentation, observation, reflection and (re-)conceptualization while undertaking a wide variety of activities. In ELCs, students learn to identify creative possibilities or alternatives of prior experience, and gain out-of-classroom experience.
