Abstract

Successful experiential learning is heavily dependent on clear learning outcomes and thorough instructor preparation. When students are prepared well, their experience is enhanced and they are able to make progress toward their academic goals. This essay discusses an experiential learning component the authors created, organized, and implemented in sections of AAP 101, the foundational English for academic purposes (EAP) course for first term students in the Kansas University Academic Accelerator Program (KUAAP). A variety of steps were taken to ensure that students' knowledge of the content would be expanded and that their ability to communicate clearly about academic content would improve
