In this workshop, we will share and discuss the results of a survey measuring the impact of co-curricular events on student learning.
In the survey, first-year students were asked to rate their learning in several LEAP objectives (such as synthesizing knowledge, critical thinking, and ethical reasoning) based on their co-curricular experiences (such as lectures, performances, and exhibits). We will look at what students said about these experiences and discuss possible ways to expand or improve our practices in integrating curricular and co-curricular activities.
