This project, Experiential Learning in Planning Education: Resources and Tools for Good Practice, builds on the findings of previous reviews of educational effectiveness and experiential learning (EL) practice in Australian planning programs. It explores the concept of experiential learning and its role in meeting new professional skills and identifies the need to broaden the definition of experiential learning from its current focus which is mainly on work experience. The project team has worked together in 2012 and 2013 to undertake a baseline survey of current EL practice, to prepare exemplar case-studies, and to develop an online toolkit of ‘good practice’ resources. Wider dissemination presentations, workshops and seminars were conducted by project partners during 2014.
