Student Experiential Learning in a Daycamp Setting

May 07, 2018

Dr. Ashley Farris-Trimble, assistant professor in the Department of Linguistics, has received a $6000 Teaching and Learning Development grant for a project that will investigate experiential learning in a daycamp setting.

The project also involves Claire Moore-Cantwell, postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Linguistics, and Danica Reid, research assistant in the phonological processing lab.

The project's goal is to investigate how hands-on research experience enhances student learning beyond classroom instruction. They plan to test this in the setting of small one-day camps for elementary school children (Little Linguists), organized and staffed by SFU students.
