With over twenty-five years as a teacher, a researcher, and academic administrator, I have seen and experienced the promises and the pitfalls of experiential education.
Whether labeled as active learning, project-based learning, community-based learning, or work-integrated learning, there are a variety of high-impact practices that have been shown to increase learner engagement and educational outcomes. But, like any methodology, it can be misused, poorly designed, or ineffective in delivery.
I work with organizations, schools, colleges, and universities to sharpen and deepen experiential teaching and learning practices.

“Jay takes critical research and makes it meaningful to any audience. As an expert in experiential education, he practices what he preaches and all of his pedagogy is meaningful and interactive. Jay is also a visionary who challenges others to not be complacent in higher education. We need more like him.”
