Experiential Learning

The English Department at Eastern seeks to connect the concepts, theories, and techniques studied within the classroom to experiences, events and ethics outside the classroom. It’s simple: as teachers and students together, we share and create stories, thereby allowing the texture of our stories to enhance the context of the world. As William Carlos Williams explains, “Their story, yours and mine -- it's what we all carry with us on this trip we take, and we owe it to each other to respect our stories and learn from them.”
