The National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE), a professional association
for practitioners of experiential learning, has developed the following set of guidelines
referred to as "Principles of Good Practice."
Intention - Determine what specific learning is intended as a result of the experience.
Clarity - Communicate goals, protocols and procedures among all stakeholders.
Monitoring and Assessment - Establish processes that define each person's role, expected outcomes, and evaluation
Reflection - Analyze activities and learning against the outcome measures established at the
beginning of the experience.
Evaluation - Clarify the evaluation role of student, faculty, and site supervisor.
Acknowledgement - Celebrate the experiential learning experience.
