10.2. A_LAB: Active Learning Courses and Related Domestic Study Trips

Oglethorpe faculty provide students a variety of opportunities to participate in domestic study trips related to their course work. Many of these courses involve short trips to specific sites in Atlanta to visit a museum, cultural center, nature preserve, historic site, corporate headquarters or a session at the state legislature. Other times, experts visit campus to speak and interact with students and faculty about topics such as leadership, politics, the environment, science or business. Domestic study trips are particularly prevalent in the FYS 101 First Year Seminar and OGL 101 Introduction to Oglethorpe courses associated with Oglethorpe’s first-year experience (see Sec. 10.14.). Faculty requiring student participation in off-campus activities as part of a course clearly indicate such on their course syllabi.
