The benefits of experiential learning are widely recognized. Many, though, find it difficult to adequately assess the many diverse outcomes which result from experiential learning.

This workshop presents an adaptable toolkit to guide the selection of assessment components for common forms of outcomes from experiential learning. Participants will be invited to discuss which forms of assessment would suit experiential learning in their discipline.
