Learning about "learning by doing"

This summer, the 2019 Mellon Institute team was tasked with producing a physical and digital exhibit showcasing the trajectory of Experiential Learning at Trinity. During the Tuesday afternoon poster session, the team proudly presented their professional multi-panel physical exhibit. If you missed stopping by the exhibit, you can still learn about their archival findings, listen to oral histories they collected, and see many pictures by visiting their virtual exhibit. Kudos to Mellon students Peyton Tvrdy ('21), Kate Nuelle ('21), Jonathan Chapman ('20), KaDarius Lee ('19) who rose to the occasion under the leadership of Dr. Erin Hood, Dr. Lauren Turek, and Dean Scherer!

Update: The Mellon Institute team sat down for an interview with President Danny Anderson, which became part of Dr. Anderson's September 2019 video message: An Experience in Learning.  And, check out this recent Trinity News Center write-up about the project!
