Learning - What
Does It Look Like?
The Faculty of Science
has an accessible, innovative
and entrepreneurial approach
THE FACULTY OF SCIENCE is committed to
experiential learning - in other words, learning
by "doing." As a result, we provide a great
deal of experiential learning content in our
courses and programs, as well as via unique
What does this hands-on approach look like
in our programs? Many of our courses provide
opportunities for students to experience research
in various settings - perhaps in a laboratory or
in a community setting. In addition, all of our
programs offer a co-op option which provides
workplace experience as part of the curriculum.
And finally, all of our programs include courses
which incorporate group work, independent
study and critical thinking since these activities
provide experiential learning and reflect
common everyday workplace reality.
Even more innovative approaches to
incorporating experiential learning at the
undergraduate and graduate level are shown
through the development of programming such
as the popular RySciMatch course, the highly
successful Industry Insights and Navigating
Networks (IINN) initiative and the incredibly
dynamic Science Discovery Zone (SDZ).
