Description

In the field of student affairs, many are rethinking the value of a wide variety of traditional aspects associated with the student experience. Recent commentary has questioned whether students should attend college that has an all-inclusive tuition, focused primarily upon academic and support services. Given the need for changes the COVID-19 pandemic has created, it is imperative to question whether this kind of academic package is ideal for the future of higher education. As issues surrounding the traditional aspects of the student experience continue to develop, research has begun to focus on how student learning and awareness can be improved, specifically within the principles of design thinking.

Applying Design Thinking to the Measurement of Experiential Learning is a forward-thinking and innovative look at assessment and design conditions that promote student learning. It proposes new models for education, conditions for student learning, and student learning assessment using design thinking and experiential learning. These topics include adjustments to curriculum, integrated learning environments, student success and student affairs, campus-wide design thinking, and testing assessments. This book is valuable for senior leaders in the field of student affairs, student affairs assessment professionals and faculty teaching in higher education programs, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students interested in how the principles of design thinking can be applied to higher education.
