Our Impact Ryerson University Faculty of Science Extraordinary Opportunities 42 A Commitment to Experiential 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 extra-curricular programming. 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).
