Experiential Learning plays an important role in UWC Costa Rica. In our students’ academic life, we encourage learning through doing and experiencing the subject matter first-hand wherever possible. This can happen during field trips, simulations, and other authentic learning opportunities.
Recent academic field trips and experiential learning opportunities for students have included:
National Theatre performance visit for Spanish Language and Literature
Ecological and conservation field explorations for Sistemas Ambientales and Environmental Systems
Theater performances for Theater and English Literature
Art galleries and museum trips in Visual Arts
A mock trial for Hitler in History
Regular ethical debates in Theory of Knowledge/Teoría del Conocimiento
