What is Applied Learning?
Applied learning refers to learning experiences that get students thinking, collaborating, and communicating, and ultimately have them engage with and contribute to the world around them. These learning experiences take place in a range of contexts, including in the classroom, the workplace, the community, and on the land, and enable learners to apply and integrate theoretical knowledge, as well as personal, practical, and professional skills. Ideally, the learning activities simulate real-world situations or are situated in a real world context.
