Teaching and learning can become inherently spontaneous and student-centered when moved from the confines of the classroom into the world at large. From the collaborative learning atmosphere that results from the unique relationships developed outside the classroom, to the deep learning that occurs when students must put into practice “in the real world” what they have theorized about from behind a desk, field experiences are unmatched in their learning potential. In this conversation on teaching, panelists who regularly take their students out of the classroom will explore the benefits of these experiences, best practices for successful learning and assessment, and some of the pitfalls to be avoided.
