Engaged Learning with the City of Corner Brook
Grenfell Campus applies experiential learning techniques all the while creating opportunities for collaboration with the City of Corner Brook.
In the current engaged learning partnership, the following principles are applied:
- Students develop projects that are focused on municipal issues;
- Students receive on-campus lectures on urban planning theory and practice, and applied training through sessions held at City Hall;
- Projects are presented to city council and city staff on completion;
- The course follows an experiential learning format with reflections, peer reviews, and written assignments.
Topics for each partnered courses are set in collaboration with the City of Corner Brook. Courses offered through this partnership are offered at the undergraduate and graduate level and include courses in geography, environmental sustainability, and chemistry.
