I have been following with interest the discourse regarding a recent provincial mandate in Ontario, Canada around experiential learning opportunities for post-secondary students. I join the conference this week after five days of illuminating discussions at both the University of Toronto and Victoria University which have further explored what experiential learning may look like when embedded at Program and Course level for both face to face and online delivery in tertiary institutions. Our research, and indeed this paper, presents a very timely look at an integrated experiential learning opportunity that may be applied to both formative and summative assessment across all disciplines and has the added benefits of reducing academic misconduct and improving student engagement and experience. I do hope that those of you who are grappling with design to include meaningful experiential learning opportunities for your students will come along to this session and join in the discussion on this topic.

Thanks Danielle, it appears like close to "perfect" assessment design in both offline and online environments! Well done on forging ahead with design that considers everything from student, instructor, and accreditation/LO outcomes.

Thank you, Thomas. It certainly has been an big success in the Griffith Business School in the management courses (Comparative Management and Sports Management) who have trialled it so far. We are looking to offer a similar design in an Event Management course in the new year also.
