Multi-learning experience course for psychology undergraduates: Combining experiential learning and theory-based research learning about disabilities

Avital Gershfeld-litvin


The advantages of experiential learning for psychology undergraduate are well documented, especially for developing practical skills and check computability for the field. To this date, classes either enable direct service learning or research service learning. I describe a unique multi learning experience combining the two types of experiential learning in one year-long seminar on disability studies. The course enabled students to learn relevant theories, design and conduct research, volunteer with people with disability and develop communicational skills in supervision. Evaluating this integrated experiential learning revelled its importance for students' personal and professional growth, the psychology department and promoting social equality.
