Principles of Good Practice

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 measures.

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.
