What is Place-Based Experiential Learning?
Place-based experiential learning is an approach to education that combines teaching methods from the separate fields of place-based education and experiential education. As such, it can be defined as an educational methodology that engages people in hands-on learning activities that empowers them to observe and reflect on topics centered around a specific location.[3,4]
Place-based experiential learning immerses people in the local history, culture, and ecosystems of a certain region, while also promoting interactive experiences.[3,4]
