About the Seminar
This seminar will explore the ethical terrain of experiential learning activities. Experiential learning is a creative and powerful pedagogical method which takes students out of the classroom to tackle real-life problems by drawing on theoretical knowledge. It involves students interacting with various stakeholder groups, where ethical concerns arise. In this seminar, experienced experiential learning teachers, NGO representative and student will share their insights in ethical issues arise from their experiences. We hope it is the first step to formulate guiding questions for educators to identify and address ethical issues in designing experiential activities

Join us in the roundtable discussion, to explore and interact with our scholars, students as well as representative in NGO on ethical dilemmas and concerns in Experiential Learning.
