Experiential Learning Commons

The Experiential Learning Commons (ELC) strives to develop and host a passionate community of learners, teachers, and researchers interested in creativity, innovation, and critical engagement with our world. We do this through specialized equipment and spaces, supported projects, and ongoing conversations.

The ELC specifically emphasizes learning, teaching, and research opportunities in the areas of making, digital media, and academic audiovisual production.

Each of these services is led by qualified staff, focused on helping faculty bring their research and teaching ideas to life and providing transformative learning opportunities for our community.
